I don't know if it's another addon causing problems (I can check if needed) - but there's no lua errors popping up. When I try to copy chat, two things happen ..
(1) When I try to highlight chat to copy it, the "highlight" doesn't actually correspond to the text I'm covering .. it seems to be around 3-4 lines of text "out" .. so I'm having to guess a lot.
(2) When I try to copy the highlighted text, around 90% of the time, instead of copying, it instead brings up my character screen. Which is very frustrating :p
My current Elephant settings are:
I reduced the settings considerably with no different outcome.
I then logged on to a different character. Same issues. Reset the chat log. Same issues. Switched off all addons other than elephant .. it appears the issues go away. So suspect it could possibly be another addon causing the issues.
Well that didn't take long .. the conflict is with Elvui. I only had Elephant and Elvui running. The problem with the character screen turning up ALL the time seems less excessive .. but the actual copying of text problem is still there.
I did think simply switching off the chat part in Elvui might resolve it .. but that made no difference.
I have been having the same issue! I haven't tested it with/without other addons yet. I will try that. But i dont use Elvui at least.
I was excited to see Elephant get updated! And then disappointed, because sadly I also have the issue mentioned below with copying text and have had it since the previous update. I hope it can get fixed. Elephant is awesome and I wouldn't survive without it.
Same here, @grimsqeaker. I have seen others having similar problems in other addons .. notably bugsack/grabber - and someone mentioned it might actually be something to do with the size of the font scaling .. so I'm going to try and have a play with that.
Would any of you be okay sending me your Elephant.lua file from the WTF/Account/<account>/<server>/<character>/SavedVariables/ folder so I can reproduce the issue? I haven't been able to so far and it bothers me that you can't use this feature properly.
WARNING: This will include all chats from Elephant. There will however be no real name included.
Sorry .. taken me a while to get back .. but this seems to be fixed? Or is that just me?
As a fair thing, problem 2) can easily be resolved by hovering the window with your mouse. Unfortunately, it's a limitation of the API and I wanted to allow users to still be able to open their Character screen even while the copy window was opened. And in order to do that, one needs to hover the copy window when pressing Ctrl+C to be able to copy the text...
As for problem 1), I've seen people having this problem but I can't fix it without some saves from someone who has this problem... keeping opened for now.
