    Default copy/paste text in chat

    simple suggestion. id like to be able to highlight, copy, and then paste stuff from the in game chat box. this would make looking up different specs people link me a lot easier, as well as w/e else one might need it for.

    I would love this too. We already have an option to click on links in twitter messages and copy them, so maybe they could expand that option to count beyond twitter messages.

    I'm in favor. You can copy and paste from outside of the game, but not copy anything inside the game.

    Also, I'd be in favor of being able to link an item/skill/talent into the chat that someone else has posted. Like if someone posts a cool weapon in guild chat, I want to be able to ctrl+click it into my chat like you could in WoW.

    Another thing is I can't link anything from my talent trees into the chat. Very frustrating when you want to show someone a talent

    Yes! Trion, please at least add true copy and paste functionality to chat.

    If I start to type a message to the wrong person, I can't copy what I just typed. The chat interface needs a lot of work - and that's the most important part of any social game!

    I would also love to be able to have a separate tab for individual conversations. For example, John Doe in a separate tab and Bill Smith in another. Right now you have to right click on their names and choose "Tell" for EVERY chat message coming in when talking to multiple people.

    I think you can link abilities from your skill window (P), but not from your talent tree (N).

    Id like the game to launch a browser when someone clicks a link in /p /g or on guild walls...

    Level chat would be nice as well, but the possibilities of scumbags abusing this is an issue.

    Sorry for bumping this thread but I really love this idea and would like it to be highlighted and approved by more people if they like it as well.

    Good ideas need a bump I think...this one is a definite good one. Would love to see copy/paste...esp for when builds are listed!

    2 years later.

    Still can't copy other people's text and links from chat with ctrl c.

    Why developers why?

    Gold selling sites. malicious links to keylogging sites, sites that can run scripts when clicked on, list can go on
