The user needs to have the ability to copy text from
the output window. Unfortunatly, this is not a normal
text window, but a list instead. We need this list for
the icons, so it will stay a list.

But we are able to let the user copy some text there
using a context menu:

"Copy Line" copies the active line to the clipboard
"Copy Visible Part" copies all lines that are shown
"Copy All" copies all lines in the list

Another nice option for this context menu would be:

"Open log file" opens the log file in the editor.

But this could be not soooo easy. TeX is saying
"Transcript written on filename.log." Maybe we should
parse that. Or we let the user define in the profile,
where the log-file is located. The last option seems to
be the best - especially for profiles like "Latex ==>
HTML".

    Together with the request

    Window
    we have another nice entry in the popup menu for copying
    text from the output: "Copy Section"

    BTW, lacking the possibility to copy from the output window is quite frustrating when trying to google for errors. It basically means you have to type every line manually into the search engine...
