Not sure, if you end up selecting only a partial code or something - and 
press DoIt - you will get parsing errors, and it doesn't look too pretty 
right now. We will make the dialog better.

You can check wiki on github, especially this page:


Where there is a tutorial from Raimon Grau:

Raimon's tutorial shows one way:

'body' asJQuery append: Counter new.

...paste that into Workspace, select code and press "Doit". This will 
manipulate the DOM interactively of the page - so look above the IDE and 
make sure you "scroll down" because it is probably "hidden" behind the IDE.

No, that is a bug in the page. Probably something happened when Nicolas 
amberified the web pages last night. He will fix :)
