Inger, Suzanne, thanks for the fast helpful response!
1. Yes, so far I used the Update Library function only with the library preview window open. I shall try to close it and will report in this thread what happened. (it may take a few days)
2. I noticed that when the library problem occurs, then unwanted fragments of code from open pages (like index.html) were copied into the library code. Does this info help?
3. I shall be pleased to try out the announced new build. If it solves the problem, then there would be no need to get a support ticket, right?

Please submit a support ticket so we can get needed screenshots, files, and other info from you. I have not been able to reproduce the problem yet so I think it has a lot to do with what files are open, preview on/off, possibly word wrap, and whether the *.lbi files were edited outside of the editor, etc. I've also identified a possible issue if you pasted code from the web into the library file (mismatched line endings), but haven't really reproduced that either. Thanks for helping track this down.

many thanks for your help, even more so since you write that you are not CoffeeCup stuff !
I tried your suggestion to close Library preview window before updating. It seems to me that it works. It is difficult to say confidently, because the whole issue is not reproducible - it occurs in perhaps 5-10% of cases, and it is generally not the same code which is inserted.
In any case I finished a complete remake of my website and am working on it only rarely now - everything will take same time.
I shall take the ticket - but it may take some time, my work on the site being essentially finished.
- It will be difficult to reproduce the phenomenon - it is not reproducible.
- I have not edited the *.lbi files outside of the editor, but I copy-pasted much code from the w3schools webpages.
Overall, I am happy with CoffeeCup - it is very down-to-earth - and I like that. It is fast to learn even for a non-expert like me.
