Impossible to copy code out of a diff


#1

Observed Behavior:

It’s impossible to copy code from a diff, since lines on the right side - as well as some line numbers - are copied as well. This was reported by colleagues who have a habit of copying parts of a diff in order to discuss them elsewhere.

Feel free to close this if you believe it to be a feature request. We’re currently evaluating Phabricator and I’m reporting all UX issues we found, in case you want to fix them.

Expected Behavior:

Select code on only one side of the diff, and do not include line numbers.

Phabricator Version:

2019 Week 4, deployed using openshift-phabricator (permalink).

Reproduction Steps:

Reproducible on a clean deployment (config), using a random diff from LKML.
