Liferea 1.6.0 correctly supports copying text from feeds to the clipboard through CTRL+C or the unix selection+middle-click trick.

However, for many users (who do not know these tricks) Liferea does not appear to support Copy/Paste. All that would be needed to resolve this small issue is to add a "Copy" item to the Contextual Menu you get when you right click on a text selection in a feed's contents.

    The description of the problem is about a feature request not an actual functional problem.

    We are short on developers and time and therefore we do not accept feature requests
    at the moment. Please use this bug tracker only for bug reports!

    If the specific function is important for you please consider working on Liferea and
    contributing patches implementing the functionality you need. Please contact us in
    IRC #liferea (FreeNode) or in the mailing list when you need help with the code!

    Thanks for your understanding!
