Make Help text copyable

The text in online help may be selected, but not copied to the clipboard. It should be copyable.

    I agree. That would make it easier to show users what it says, and if we are requesting changes or updates.

    Sounds like a good idea.
    Meanwhile ... you know, until the programmers get a round tuit ... access the Help Server from your browser or
    locate the desired Help page there and try to cut & paste from your browser.
    You could also use the Windows Snipping Tool or Shift-PrtScreen to capture an image of the text in question to an image file, crop unneeded portions of the image, etc. You know the drill.

    Maybe a better idea would be if they stopped using that limited embedded web browser and just brought help in you default web browser.  As sits right now, not only can’t you copy and paste you can’t even find out what the URL that they are pulling up is.

    To me, @Chris_QPW idea seems the best way to handle this!
