Hey how come you can't get this bug fixed? Console is
useless without being able to copy from the console.

    Indeed, I cannot copy at all from within the console.

    I figured it out. First you need to go to different font (sorry I
    can't remember which one). When they say left-click to copy
    they mean copy WITHIN console, not from your windows
    clipboard. Copying from the clipboard is not possible. They
    need to clarify that a little better. I love this app and still use
    it even without the functionality. I just pray that one day the
    authors will include this missing piece.

    I don't undertand the followups... Please read the Readme
    file carefully. Select/copy works only for fixed fonts
    (Lucida Console, fonts that come with the Console - which
    you have to install in order to get them to work)

    To select text, use shift+left click and drag. When you have
    something selected, you can click inside that selection to
    copy it to the clipboard. If you want to clear the selection
    without copying it to the clipboard, click outside the
    selection.

    Wrong. Installing a fixed font or one of Console fonts will
    allow you to shift-left click to copy. But your copied text is
    only usable INSIDE the Console app. You cannot, I repeat,
    cannot paste it to any other Windows app. Console must use
    it's own version of clipboard that only it can access.

    Ok, I get it now... The 'paste outside of console' bug has
    been reported by some people. It's been fixed (hopefully :-)
    in the latest development release (1.42 build 331) I had one
    user that reported the problem test it before I released it,
    so more testing will be appreciated.

    The latest beta works with fixed font. Thanks!
