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

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

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!
