🐛 Cannot copy task id

The cursor changes to the “text selection” mode when hovering over the id. However, it doesn’t allow to select text:

phab_copy_id

Reproduction Instructions

  • Hover the ID of a task.
  • A text selection cursor appears, indicating that you can select text.
  • Try to select the text.
  • You cannot, instead the “card” moves.
  • Try to double click the id (which by default it also selects text in most systems).
  • You cannot, instead the card highlights.

Solutions

  • Allow to copy text.
  • Don’t show a text selection cursor when hovering on text that cannot be copied.

PS, there are many UX issues like this. Depending on the response I get here I’ll open more UX bug reports. I am strongly opposing using Phabricator but unfortunately it’s not up to me.

Thanks, I filed this upstream as https://secure.phabricator.com/T13452. It should be resolved by https://secure.phabricator.com/D20898.

As long as your bug reports are clear and thorough like this one, it’s not a problem if you don’t particularly like the software.

Sure, thanks and thanks for the rapid response!
