I'm trying to copy python text from the info view, but I can't select any text. I tried 2.6.4 and 2.7.6. Am I doing something wrong?
I'm using Blender on OS X 10.11
Have a look at the UserPreferences->Input->Info
The 'Select Mouse' on window is a right-click. This will highlight a line, and the same action to remove the highlight. Whatever you use on the Mac to select geometry, should be the same key that will work in the info-window to select lines.
Copy Reports: will copy highlighted reports.
short-comings: (November 2015)
It isn't currently possible to select part of a line, it's the whole line or nothing.
