Hi Eric,

right click in cell > Edit Comment. Then mark and copy the text as usual. Click somewhere else to leave edit mode.

Kind regards

copying the content of a popup comment in an LO Calc cell.

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Select/copy content of a comment

How do I select and copy the content of a comment?

    [if you're referring to a website, then run the mouse along the copy
which should highlight that portion, then right-click & choose copy which
should place the highlighted text in the temporary storage so you can
it elsewhere;

     if you're referring to an e-mail, then you can attempt to do the
same -
but sometimes, you'll have to first click as if you were planning to send
the document elsewhere in order to make the copy accept the mouse -
why, I
haven't a clue  ;-)]

  When I open the comment and try to select its content, all I get is
a hand
to move the content around on the page.

    [whether referring to a site or an e-mail, you could 'save as' this
document to the machine, then try again when it's on your machine - why,
this works I haven't a clue other than you've possibly broken whatever
site had holding it  ;-)]

(Eg, I've got a long URL in the comment that I want to copy and past into
the browser.) The page on inserting and editing comments doesn't seem to
address this function.

    [simplest method would be to copy a portion of this URL - paste
into a
notepad document; then copy remaining portion of URL - paste this onto
portion in notepad - then the whole URL is ready to copy & paste into
browser window.]
