Text selection?
« on: February 23, 2014, 08:55:29 AM »
Not sure if this is a bug or just hasn't been implemented, but when I try to select text, it does highlight, but the selection disappears upon releasing the mouse button. I'd like to be able to copy text and such straight from the chat rather than digging through the logs.

As you can see, I can highlight this text. The only thing is that the selection doesn't persist once I let go of the mouse.

This is because it copies it straight to the clipboard, after you release the mouse.

Oh, I see now! Thanks for that.
Although, I do have to admit, an actual context menu could be useful.
