keep a selected text highlight
« on: December 11, 2005, 03:30:57 AM »
hello

when i want to select a text to copy it, after i select it when i release the mouse button the text is no more highlighted so i cant do a right click to choose "copy"  and i have to keep the mouse button pressed and make a "ctrl+c" to copy it.

i think it would be more practical if the text stays highlighted until we clic somewhere else.

(i noticed that the selection of a text is possible only when i move the mouse from left to right and not in the other way)

thank you

There is no need to "copy" the selected text, IceChat automatically copies it to the clipboard when you release the mouse.
Pressing ctrl-c does not copy it to the clipboard.
