Bug Description

In the Calibre editor, in the live CSS window (normally at the bottom right) It shows the applied styles and final computed style. It would be really useful to be able to copy this info and paste into notepad or whatever when I am trying to "debug" why a layout goes wrong / compare with other blocks of text. But the text in this window doesn't seem to be enabled for copy.

Maybe this is something easy to do? If so would be worth it I think.

Thanks, Steve

Calibre 2.35, Windows 7 32 bit

Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every Friday.

Many thanks for this.

I only want to ask one thing - would it be possible to make the copy rich text rather than plain text. The strikethroughs don't copy for obvious reasons. Also one has to "search out" the divisions which are obvious in the window.

This is very minor so if not possible or doesn't make sense for other reasons (I cant claim to have thought this through) don't bother.

Thanks again!

Making it rich text is more work than it is worth, but it is easy to
insert separators and mark overriden items in plain text
