Selecting and copying text is not working correctly in the recipe output window.

The Ctrl+A hotkey only selects a line at a time.

Using the mouse, it's sometimes possible to select an entire line. Often, the selection stops after only a few characters.

Ctrl+C to copy does seem to copy whatever happens to be selected, with the "Copied!" popup appearing.

In the recipe editor, Ctrl+A selects the entire recipe, regardless of length. Selections with the mouse work as expected.

Hi Loci,

Due to internal implementation, selection in the recipe output window is limited to one line at a time, in a similar way that chat selection is only one chat message at a time. If the community asks for a way to copy out recipe output, we may be able to add this as a future feature.

I haven't updated my clients lately, so I don't know all 
the changes that have been made recently, but it used to 
be that the contents of the Recipe Output Window also went 
into a file called scriptlog.default.xml. From this file, 
one could then use an editor like Notepad to search the 
Recipe Output and copy/paste any part of it to other places.
