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

enter image description here

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.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks! I changed Mouse from Select Mouse to Left Mouse and now I can select line by line. $\endgroup$ – mipmip Nov 12 '15 at 20:54
  • $\begingroup$ Oh OK. interesting! I would have expected the equivalent of geometry selection to work on the info panel. $\endgroup$ – zeffii Nov 12 '15 at 20:56
