Allow select/copy of text within app

Just a quick request/suggestion to allow for select/copy of text within the app(s). Hypertext links within discussion do not create clickable links, so when someone provides a great link to help someone, there is no way to copy it. You're left taking a screenshot and then later typing it into your browser by hand, or switching between the app and your browser, typing it in character by character... german.about.com/library/some-really-long-link-with-random-unknown-words-in-it-making-it-hard-to-remember.htm.

It also would allow for copying of sentences/words/concepts to look up after our lesson.

What I do is select the link plus a few characters in front or behind it and then you can copy/paste that string into a new browser window. Then in the URL box you can just delete the extra characters and have the new link clean. So for example I could copy your link above as "ter... german.about.com/library/some-really-long-link- left rest off on purpose" and then when I paste it just backspace over the "ter... " extra characters to get the correct link.

Are you speaking of webpage or android/iphone app? I mean the app. On android (at least), the problem is there is no select at all. You can touch and hold on someone's comment, but the option to select and copy never comes up. So currently it's a big pain to follow any links that are suggested in discussion.

Sorry, I was talking about the webpage. I also use an iPad when traveling and the app for that doesn't show any comments, but I haven't updated to the latest OS.
