3219948 - WEBGUI - Can't copy only a fraction of text in ALV table


When using Webgui, copying only a part of an attribute in a cell is not possible.

Using Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V results in the copying of the full text even if only a fraction was selected.

In this example, when text fraction "HANSA" is copied with Ctrl+C,

the full text ("LUFTHANSA") will be copied in the notepad with Ctrl+V.
