Description of Problem:

When a message box appears I often need to copy the message it contains. Normally in Windows one simply presses control-C and the contents of the message is copied onto the clipboard. In MonoDevelop, nothing happens.

Here is an example of how it behaves in Visual Studio.

Microsoft Visual Studio
EXCEPTION: Mono.Debugging.Soft.DisconnectedException: The connection with the debugger has been lost. The target application may have exited.

MonoDevelop's exception dialogs do allow copying the text, but require you to select the text first.
Comment 3 Jeffrey Stedfast 2012-01-06 15:49:30 UTC
Implemented this for MacOS
Comment 4 Jeffrey Stedfast 2012-01-06 16:20:49 UTC
Implemented on Linux and Windows now too.
