Send Keys to Console

I spoke to DO Support about allowing users to paste to the console, and they said that this was harder than it sounds.

I therefore suggest that Digital Ocean add a text box to the Console page which users can enter their strings. Digital Ocean can then programatically send these keys to the console solving this issue.

Support suggested this was a good idea hence me suggesting it.

    Hey everyone,
    I'm a product manager here at DigitalOcean and I wanted to send a quick update about this issue. We just released the ability to paste text into our Cloud console! Give it a try and let us know if there is anything else we can help with.
    Thanks,
    Keith

    Any solution to this would be great. I'm sat here (again) trying to mount a digitalocean block storage onto a digitalocean host using digitalocean's instructions and digitalocean's console, and I can't type a "pipe" symbol, nor copy their instructions from the web control panel into the console. It's pretty poor.
