Unable to select text while in read-only mode

It seems that when you switch to read-only mode, you cannot select text anymore to copy snippets out.

I filed this as a bug because I cannot imagine it's a feature ;-)
Well, yes, you can only select text when you have a cursor. This is only possible when the editor has focus (or is the "first responder" in iOS speak).

But you are right, Safari for example allows you to select text by double-clicking even when the text is not editable. I'll consider adding this feature.
