copying text does not copy formatting codes

Bug #135089 reported by Thomas Winwood on 2007-08-27
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
xchat (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: xchat

If I select some text in X-Chat, copy it and paste it back again all formatting codes are lost. This combined with bug #101872 makes it impossible for me as an operator in a channel to alter the channel's topic without either stripping all formatting or replacing all formatting manually, which is a considerable annoyance if (as is the case) the topic contains considerable quantities of formatting.

Ideally the default behaviour would be to copy without formatting, but with a rightclick option to copy with formatting.
