Text Selection and Copy to Clipboard for the Preview

Creating preview files is all well and good. However, when you needed to access the texts within the preview for post processing, you had to resort to a text export, finding the relevant strings and copying them from there.

Once activated, you can select texts in the preview by simply dragging the required selection rectangle:

 

The usual shortcut Ctrl+C (or a context menu) then copies the text to the clipboard for further processing in your favorite editor:

 

Note that you can either select single columns (or parts from single columns) or whole lines, tables or other objects – the new feature works on anything that ultimately produces horizontal texts that are not Glyphs.
