ChatEdit  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.1.40000
by: AnduinLothar [More]
ChatEdit is another complicated mod to do something simple: allow you to select your chat text for copying. Simply shift-click a chat frame to enter 'edit mode'.

Edit mode is basically an editbox in which the text won't let you change it. The editbox directly overlaps the chat frame and is scrollable and resizable by the normal methods, as well as a scroll bar that pops up to the right. To make copying less painful no text will be added to the editbox while in edit mode, but it will appear in the chat frame when you leave edit mode.

To exit edit mode click anywhere on the WorldFrame or hit escape.

ChatEdit also increases the default chat frame memory from 128 lines to 500.

Note: For reasons of auto-line wrapping and non-standard width fonts it is nearly impossible to figure out what scroll position the chat frame is at. For this reason when you enter edit mode it will always scroll down to the bottom. Also be aware that the editbox has smooth scrolling as opposed to the chat frame's line by line scrolling.

Note: Thankfully the text string length editbox bug was fixed in a past WoW patch. If you ever run into a repeatable case where the selectable text is empty, let me know!

If you click somewhere else do you see the cursor there for a second before it goes back to where it was?
Does it look like it's constantly refreshing the text?

Update!

I hope the update works well. I've been missing this one. I don't like the other chat addons because they want to rewrite the chat interface and I'm perfectly happy with the default except for the fact it won't let me copy/paste.

Thanks for the update!

The text just goes transparent or gets hidden somehow when you activate the frame to select the text to copy. It's there, you shift click, and poof- gone. You can still select it, but can not see it.

Anyone have a clue? Doesn't happen every time, but usually.
Doesn't work at all for me. This is the best mod for c/p chat text. I've been using this since Cosmos!! The other mods change things around with no options to change them. Like the text box is at the top, rahter have it at the bottom.

Re: Error Message at Login

Looks like a GEM bug, that's in the ChatFrame.AddMessage hook.
ChatEdit.ChatFrameAddMessage(self, text, r, g, b, lineID)
One of r,g,b was passed as a table instead of a number.
