UI copy/paste usability regression

In newer version of the Intellij SonarLint plugin, it is no longer possible to select and copy the issue location and rule code/name using Ctrl+C (see attached screenshot).

This is a usability issue that makes it harder to f.i. suppress the warning in code or create issues in an issue tracker, as devs now have to retype this information. (It also used to work as expected before, although I can’t really say the exact version in which this changed.)

  • Operating system: Windows 11
  • SonarLint plugin version: SonarLint on IntelliJ IDEA 2022.3.2
  • Programming language: Java (but irrelevant to the issue)
  • Is connected mode used: Connected to SonarQube 9.9 (but irrelevant to the issue)

Hello @Bragolgirith,

Thank you for your report, we confirm the regression on the rule description header not being copyable, and I have created this bug ticket as a result.

About copying an issue directly from the list, this is something that was not implemented in the past - unless I’m wrong - so we don’t plan on fixing this.
