Feature Request: Allow text to be copied from Preview Pane

Postby heironimus@csgsolutions.c » Wed Sep 05, 2007 1:29 pm

In SQL Doc Version a user is allowed to select text in the Preview pane, but they cannot copy the text to the Windows clipboard (i.e. right-clicking the selected text does not bring up a context menu; pressing CTRL+C does not copy the selected text to the clipboard). A feature to consider adding would be to allow a user to select the text from the preview pane and copy it to the Windows clipboard.

I've added this forum thread to the feature request for this feature that's already in the database for this product.

The reason that copy doesn't work in the first place is because we're using IE's renderer in the preview pane to make sure that it's as close as possible to what people will see - so the easily-available context menu / shortcuts setup was unsafe in a variety of ways and we had to disable it.
