I have a Rich Text Field with a hyperlink in it. When I select the entire field and copy -paste it into a a text editor or other software, the hyperlink gets lost. The same is true for other kinds of formatting, like bold, italic, etc.
The formatting only gets copied correctly if I go in to edit the field, and then select and copy the text.
I use Rich Text Fields and Scripts in order to generate hyperlinks in a field, but without being able to copy them, this is not so much use for me.
I stumbled into this exact same problem yesterday with a client of mine, and it was very frustrating.
I would recommend emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to request this, because sadly they don’t pay attention to the majority of posts here.
This is expected behavior and easily explained.
Thanks for the explanation. I can see why it would happen. Does this mean, though, that it’s technically impossible to copy the HTML of the field I selected by default, rather than the markdown?
No, not if you use automated scripting to do so.
