Right now it is not possible to copy a folded element by selecting the
corresponding line. First you have to open the whole node tree, select
and finally copy it. A more comfortable approche would copy the whole
xml element in folded state.

If this is not the preferred behaviour for the majority a option in the settings
dialog would help here :-)

    Thanks for your suggestion!

    I'm wondering if this might confuse some users though.

    Right now, I can copy a node that has been collapsed by highlighting the full line and extending the highlight to the start of the next visible line. (Tested today on 1.2.0.4 Windows. If this doesn't work it's a bug.)

    This is what I'd expect the editor to do. If the program automatically extended the selection to include the folded text, how would I go about copying just the header line?

    All suggestions welcome!
    Gerald
