Marking text in shoes apps (for copy & paste)

Marking text in shoes apps (for copy & paste)

Hi folks,

maybe my google-fu just isn't good enough but I can't mark text (like 
para "Mark me if you can!" ) with my mouse in order to copy it in shoes 
apps, is there a special option to enable this which I don't find?

cheers,
Tobi

Hi Tobi,

There is no special option.

If you want to copy the text that `para` displays on the Shoes app window,
you have to implement by yourself.

I know hackety-hack is doing, but it's not easy way.

It's better (easy) to use edit_box, IMHO.

Thanks for the quick answer ashbb (once again!).

Yeah well edit_box.. it's about infoes and some people might like to 
copy & past the text of tweets or something like that, but I don't wanna 
display tweets in edit_lines :-)

Hi Tobi,

> it's about infoes
Oh, I see.
How about adding 'copy' button at each tweets?
