Make it possible to copy highlighted text
It should be possible to copy the text easily from a highlight. Right now, this is almost impossible. (One had to switch to the Edit tool). Why not create a Copy Highlight item in the context menu. Or, when one clicks on and selects a highlight, why not simply let CMD-C do the job?
Cannot believe this has not been implemented yet. Such a quick fix. CMD+C on a highlighted segment is a must-have!

There is already a related preference for that. Preferences > Commenting > Choose the last one. "Copy selected text into Highlight, Strikethrough, Underline... etc.
That will put it into the pop up note, where it will be easy to copy.

Yes, yes, and yes. We highlight what's the most important and then have to fiddle to copy that. That should be Obvious to allow it. Perfectly with an option to include Document title or document name meta tag after the copied text that's enclosed in brackets. Such small quirks would make this really handy for my papers.
