Bug Description

Binary package hint: liferea

THE PROBLEM

The right-click menu, inside the main viewing area for Liferea, does not include a "Copy" option.

HOW TO REPRODUCE

1. Click on any RSS entry that features text inside the main viewing area.

2. Select some of the body text for that entry.

3. Open a right-click menu.

4. Note that the only options are "Increase size" and "Decrease size."

5. Use Ctrl-C to copy the text instead (works fine), because there is no "Copy" in the right-click menu.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR

Right-clicking on highlighted text should always give you the option to copy it. ("Select All" wouldn't be bad either.)

I've noticed this as well. However, you can still copy text in the main viewing area by highlighting the text with your mouse and pressing Ctrl and C at the same time.

However, the author of liferea noted (back in 2007) that they will not devote time to add this feature.
