I did not understand your suggestion until i thought it 5 times :( (toj)

 

But I think basically you mean that when someone writes in xat you can only copy 1 word

It would be well the suggestion, to be able to copy a whole text and not a single sentence, but I do not think it can be because he has a space and space is not copied in order to copy a sentence must be all stuck

 

Examples:

 

With space:

Does not have space:

What I'm suggesting is that in most chats such as Facebook messenger or typing a document or something that you can highlight as many spaced words as you want up to the whole thing and be able to copy and paste it.

Or it could be made like a option in the extra features page on chats.

Making possible allow it or not in the chat (with allow as default), helping in the situation that @Lunala mentioned.

It would only make it useful for THAT specific situation. Other than that the part of "allowing or disallowing" part of this would be useless.

You can do this if you use ALT + 255 is your spaces

 

I think that would be very uncomfortable and much more if the phrase is long. In spite of that, it would be a good alternative.

 

( ) < try copy it from within the parentheses and make a sentence in the xat.

What I was gonna say is maybe xat could replace normal space with ALT + 255 ?

Hi 8-)
This can be useful and not, but it is not necessary - (100%)  only (50%) xD, this is not Obligatory, but the idea is good, because many times I needed to copy something and I did not succeed.

Do I remember that I could copy before, or am I wrong? (sry):o

wtf but then everyone would CHEAT on xat dot com slash contests and copy ALL of the sentence in typerace! lol

Then typerace needs modifications. This copying problem would either way auto-fix when the HTML5 client comes out, meaning typerace is forced to modify. Then again, that's all on FEXBots's will.

NO :'(

If in a future, on html5, users get allowed to  copy of our messages...

This is certainly an issue to type races :@

I think that having a feature, maybe free or subscriber only or as a power (up to xat staff)
A feature to protect the user's messages / change the message space

In this case, using Paul's idea I think there can be changes now (in flash), and later (for html5).

 

While on Flash, 

xat would implement predefined macros allowing users to opt between their spaces, i.e.
 

$msgspace=0 

$msgspace=1

0 => wont copy (xat standard message, each word/part separated), 1 => allows to copy (alt +255, can copy entire message)

 

When on HTML5, the predefined macro would be re-added but in different oreder

0 => allows to copy (alt +255), 1 => wont copy (xat standard message)
 

Note: in these examples, 0 would be always the default to all users.

  • Flash: Help mods can set $msgspace=1 and make help easier 
  • Flash: Traders can set $msgspace=1 and price multiple prices at once faster
  • HTML5: A feature to allow users to protect their messages/texts (useful for typerace)

 

If it doesn't take much it would be nice to see this feature added on Flash (I mean, right now)

Depending on how the macro is used on flash, it could be then re-implemented (on HTML5).

 

Typeraces matter :$
