Copy text from viewer (aka, preview mode)
I have shared a presentation with some co workers. When they view the presentation they need the ability to select and copy text from a slide. However, when they click the slide to make a selection it changes to the next slide.

Yes, we primarily need to copy and past text. A lot of our work is done in a Linux terminal and we use PowerPoint online slides, embedded in a website, for training and sharing examples. The ability to copy and paste commands or scripts from a slide, without downloading the presentation, would be great! We like embedding the slides in a website because they are easily updated by others who don't know HTML (example here: http://home.chpc.utah.edu/~u0553130/Brian_Blaylock/wrf.html#TUTORIAL). Copying graphics would also be a neat function others may find helpful.
Hi Brian. Appreciate the request and understand the need. Is it primarily text your co-worker want to copy vs. graphics or even whole slides?
