CodeSelect needs fixes:
Too big when there is just one line.
Too small when there are two lines, example: https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Template:Deactivate_Misc_Proxy_Settings
Also, if fixable, the [select code] text should never cover other text if there is a lot text input.
This has a lot going on. First, you are hiding a
<pre>, then selecting from a textarea, z-indexing a div and the select link, then the link is traversing the dom tree to select text in the textarea while resizing the textarea with a JS call on the classes… see where I am going? There is a lot going on for a textarea view with a select all code to make it easier to copy it.
Backing up, I added https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Whonix:Sandbox/Code_select as a demo on something a little easier to do. Hover over the text area, left click to select or right click to select and copy. Done. Check it out. I know the
[select text]link is gone, but hover over the textarea box will add some styling which will clue there is something active to do. I set it so the mouse pointer will change to a “grab hand” which is another clue. Click anywhere in the box and the text is all selected. Click again and you can click to select just text you want, which is probably not the use.
Mobile, will focus, but not select and I can not see a need to select all and copy to paste somewhere. Who is using their mobile device to copy and paste code to execute or change config files?
