When I want to select a whole text from Storymaps and copy+paste it to somewhere else, it only lets me select one paragraph at a time. This makes copy+pasting very time consuming.
My idea is simply to make it possible to highlight/select more than one paragraph of text at a time!
Yes! This is very annoying that we can't do this. I have to do this workflow all the time.
@JulieGrindborg -- We are working on updates to the text selection/editing in the story builder, including the ability to select multiple text blocks at a time. This is a big project and we hope to release this work later this year.
However, it sounds like you have a very specific need, so could you clarify your request?
You mentioned you want to copy all the text of a story and paste it somewhere else (presumably outside the story builder). Is that the most important aspect of this request? If so, you can do that today by viewing the published story or using print preview and then using the browser's selection tools. Use Edit > Select All (CMD+A on a Mac) to select all the text in the story, and you can then copy it and paste the text somewhere else.
Let us know if this workaround will work for your situation.
She could possibly be referring to moving sections of text or re-ordering. I know sometimes for me, when going through the review/editing process with authors, they want to move entire sections around. When this happens I have to copy/paste block-by-block to a new area within a story map or a different story map in a collection.
YES! I have this problem all the time and it is incredibly time consuming.
