Is There a Way to Copy Text/Links/etc. From a Dataview Table to the Clipboard?

Things I have tried

  • Selecting text with the mouse

What I’m trying to do

This must be a newbie thing, but I cannot figure out how to copy text generated from a Dataview TABLE query. A LIST works fine.

Tried both live-preview mode and reading mode? (Both seem to work.)

As a test, can you use CMD A or CTRL A to select, copy, and paste an entire note to check if the table data can actually be copied. If that works, something must be awry with how the text is or isn’t being picked up when using a mouse.

I don’t use live preview. I can select entire rows or the whole table. But not text in cells.

Ok, figured it out.

The text in cells were getting selected.

I just couldn’t register that because the whole row highlighting on hover masked over the text selection highlighting.

I am an idiot.
