Seems the TextLabel control does not do highlighting though :(
So an alternative behaviour could unavoidable.
You'd have to assume restoring the old behaviour was not such a simple task
or Ben would have done that.
I saw the commit you pointed to and saw he added a copy button but it seems
to be gone now.

you may have to adjust slightly, bend a little, change your instruction to
your subjects from
"drag-n-select the text, right click and select copy" to "double click the
text" ;)

I just noticed there is already a popup menu "copy text" item and function
set up in the message source.
But nothing has mnuPopup set as its menu.

It works but the shortcut key Ctrl+C does not.

Could that be enabled Ben?
