To clarify, I'm talking about the conversation area here. There is currently not even a way to select the text there.

Seems like something we have to put off to trial-2, though the ability to cut a URL out of a chat, and paste it into the browser URL is something we really need for Trial-2.

In short, we have to have some way to share links; see #2304.

The easier solution for Trial-2 might be to display uris as links and make single click open them in the browser.

  • Milestone changed from Untriaged to Trial-2

That's a fine solution to me, particularly as it's something that ought to work that way anyway. Go for it.

comment:5 Changed 7 years ago by jg

Unless this is minimally invasive, we should push this to Trial-3.

Your call, Morgs, Marco.

It would be quite complicated since Hippo doesn't support text selection yet.

still some issues left with copy and paste; can copy and paste out of text entry field, but can't copy from the conversation fields.

This isn't going to make Trial 3. You can copy/paste in the text entry field, but you can't select text to copy from, from the conversation CanvasRoundBox items.

Copying text from there will take a redesign using different widgets.

As a workaround, you can get at that text afterwards: resuming a Chat session from the Journal puts the chat log into Write, from where you can copy the text.
