Is there a metadata setting, or other method, that would force the use of the pencil to inline-edit a text or textarea field so that the user could copy/paste without triggering an inline-edit?
Would you prefer to change the Pencil into a copy? Keep the Pencel and add another Icon to copy? Hover over the field and just press the control/command-c to copy?
Thanks Jeff Bickart, I want to make it easy for someone to cut and paste a text field in Record View without automatically going into inline edit.
The thought was that they could click and select the text without entering inline edit, and if they want to edit the field they could then use the pencil to enter edit mode. Sort of the way checkboxes work.
Any solution that would make copying easy will work
I suspect you would need to either change some of the CSS or the Handlebars template for the record view, possibly both.
There is a class named record-edit-link-wrapper that is used in that context which is likely what you'll need to tinker with, or remove.
I forgot to mention, you should also take a look at the handleEdit event in the recordview controller.
