terminology text select


Hi!

Tried to select text, which is longer than one terminal window, so text is scrolling down(or up), but when I release mouse button selection disappear. For short text it work. Is it possible to fix it?

what kind of fix do you mean? I think the selected text will be still available.
Anyway, you need to tell us: what kind of terminal is it (at least).

I am not sure about this.

All works fine here. Terminology supports words wrapping so, there is no chance for line to be longer than terminology window limit.

Shared video would be fine to see what happens there

open terminology and type big text to make it scrolling up.
than spin mouse wheel, select all the text from top to bottom, it become highlighted.
release mouse-highlight disappear, text not selected and no point to right-click\copy
it happens only if the text big enough and necessary to use scroll up-down

I'm sorry, looks like misunderstood. Anyway, that is a general problem, I mean how to work (what to do) if you wish to do two (or more) things in the same time.
Selecting text and scrolling are [contingently] two conflicting operations.
I use Terminator and looks like that behaves better.

This terminology actually looks quite complex, you might want to upgrade to the latest (if possible) or discuss it here: https://www.enlightenment.org/about-terminology

I meant select text with mouse,press left button and move mouse down.
thanks for link, looks like it's Terminology issue, not E17.

This does seem to be a terminology bug. I repeated it by first scrolling back in terminology a few pages, then start selecting (with left mouse button) and select those few pages. It stays highlighted until I release the mouse button, then deselects itself before I can right-click copy or ctrl-shift-c.

The workaround is to start selecting from the bottom up, then it doesn't undo itself. But this is more awkward.
