Issue copying Live Text (Monterey)

Reported by Mika Raunio | August 20th, 2022 @ 01:41 AM

I'm using Monterey on an M1 device, and was happy to discover that Live Text works with attached images in MailMate - but it seems, not always:

I have en email sent from Yahoo with one picture attachment which is first shown inlined in the message text, and again as full-width under the signature.

With both instances of the image, I can highlight text. However I can only copy text from the second image. When I highlight and copy from the inline image, nothing is placed on the clipboard.

    • State changed from “new” to “fixcommitted”

    MailMate overrides how copying works in the message view (WKWebView class) for other reasons. This had the side effect of breaking live text (which I didn't know it could do). I believe it's better now: Hold down ⌥ when clicking “Check Now” in the Software Update preferences pane to get the latest test release.
