UI/UX Tweak - Allow (easy) Text Selection of Formula Generated Text

When text is generated by a formula - either on a page or in a column - if you try to select the text, it is not selectable. Instead, a modal pops up that says “Formula Calculated Column: Values can’t be directly edited”

However, often, this text is generated by formula so that it may be accessible to the doc-user, and this behavior provides a (sometimes steep) barrier to usability.


Funny, I just ran into this yesterday. I REALLY wanted to copy some text in a formula column and it made me grumpy :laughing:


Hey @codans, bumping this. Any chance to fix this? I’m running into this problem pretty frequently.
