I just came to know that android app users can copy comment's text:

Can we get such option in the iOS app as well? Currently there is only "Share" option which copy or send the comment permalink.

  • I hit this the other day and am now kicking myself that I didn't post it as a feature request. :-P – Martijn Pieters Dec 21 '14 at 12:52

    @MartijnPieters oh, you'll live without the meager 5-30 repz it would give. ;) – Shadow Wizard is Vaccinating Dec 21 '14 at 12:54
  • I don't have an ios capable device so I won't vote – rene Dec 21 '14 at 12:59
  • @rene and you let this stop you from using the awesome iOS app?! You can always borrow from a friend/family member... :D (and it would give you a hat! ;)) – Shadow Wizard is Vaccinating Dec 21 '14 at 13:08

    @ShadowWizard: geeks borrowing from friends or family? Have you forgotten about emulators?! Another handy way to avoid social contact! – Martijn Pieters Dec 21 '14 at 13:09
  • I thought you can select the comments and copy it right? (Just guessing, if it's wrong I'll delete this comment.) – 54D Dec 21 '14 at 16:47
  • @ArceusMaster0493 nope, guess because it's not a text element it's not selectable. Ordinary tap opens up a menu and long tapping has no effect. No need to delete the comment, it's not that trivial. :) – Shadow Wizard is Vaccinating Dec 21 '14 at 18:27

This will be available beginning in beta version

You should now see "Copy" among the comment options.

enter image description here

In addition, comments that are copied will preserve formatting when pasted into applications that support it (e.g. Mail.app, Notes.app, etc).
