Datatable blockselect selects also text in EDGE

edited July 2018 in Technical questions

In the Microsoft Edge browser when I select a block of data (blockselect) the text in the single datatable cells is selected as well. This is happening in the current version of Webix - 5.4.

Apparently, this breaks the CTRL-V/CTRL-C functionality as when pressing CTRL-C it's the selected text that is copied into the clipboard and pasted into Excel which isn't the intended behaviour.

Open the following URL in Microsoft Edge:, select a block of multiple columns, copy the data and paste into Excel to see an example of the wrong behaviour.

This seems to be a regression bug as the described issue isn't happening in Webix 5.0 and below in Microsoft Edge.

    Any chance this could get fixed in the next release(es)? The fix should be easy an easy one. Thanks
