Notes blocked from tablet Copy/Paste

I have a form where I am tracking all the Unknown Codes entered in a repeat.  I then give this list to the user at the end of the form.  I want them to be able to copy and paste this list into another tablet program.  But if it is a note or read only the tablet will not highlight and copy it.  Thinks it is not text I guess.

 

I can make it a text instead but then the user might accidently delete it when trying to copy it.  Also on some tablets the copy blacks out the text (instead of the blue highlight).

 

Why is copying blocked?  What is the best way to do this?  Is there a copy button or action I could use?  Like a copy to clipboard option would be sweet.  Or maybe even a URL that opens Memo or Word?   I need it to work on Android and Apple.

 

Thanks
