Copy Text Functionality Removed?

Postby tcohen » Wed Jul 30, 2014 10:17 pm

As a ward executive secretary, I found it very useful to be able to copy data from a member's directory profile (membership number, phone number, etc.), and paste it into a text or e-mail.

It appears that the latest version of LDS Tools has removed the ability to copy text. Why?

FWIW, the 2.3.0 version of LDS Tools for Android, which was released in the last month or so, still allows you to copy text. If the change you report on the iOS version were an intentional change based on policy, I would think it would affect Android as well.

I just checked this, and tcohen is correct, you can no longer copy data from the members info. A workaround would be to do a screenshot, then crop to the information you need. This can then be sent as a jpg. Not as elegant, but I have used this with other sites that don't allow copying.

This would be good feedback to submit through the app under Settings > Help > Feedback. I agree that it's useful to be able to copy and paste from LDS Tools.
