I want to be able to select some or all of the text in a view row and copy it to the clipboard, then paste it somewhere as text.
Right now, click-and-drag grabs the entire view entry for dragging to a folder. Obviously, I don't want to lose that feature. But both left-click-and-drag and right-click-and-drag do the same thing! One of them could be lost to give us the ability to select text. Honestly, I don't care which one. Maybe it should be a user preference.
Consider the address book views. Wouldn't it be wonderful to be able to select a phone number and paste it into skype's dialer? I could come up with lots of other examples.
BTW: I don't have an ND8 client handy to test whether this is already there. I don't recall ever seeing it demoed or otherwise noticing it. But if it is there, then that's great -- and never mind ;-)
