Get the marked text from a MultiLineInput

Use Case:

Person A enters text in a MultiLineInput and it gets stored in a Thing.

Person B loads up the text but should not be able to edit it. However, I would like Person B to be able to mark parts of the text for extraction to another Element/Thing.

I can’t find a way for that using a MultiLineInput (disabled) or a Text. Is it possible?

Also I would like to insert text at the cursor position. Or if that doesn’t work, copy text to the clipboard for the user to paste manually.

It is possible that there is some Javascript/HTML Element trick you could do, but I can’t think of any way to do it in native Bubble I afraid.

Thanks @NigelG. I’ll change the use case - not ready to goto Javascript. :blush:
