A really simple fix, that would greatly help your support staff.

As a User
I want to be able to copy the text from the product "About" dialog boxSo that I can give the support staff the correct information (cutting down on frustration and transposition errors)

Less than 5 mins to do in code. Come on chaps!

I think this is what Snagit 2018 does, via it's OCR capabilities.

I don't think OSX exposes text objects as text when you take a screen capture, as you're typically taking a copy of the screenbuffer which is just a giant array of colored dots.

I've noticed on Windows some dialogs let me CTRL-C from them, but I've not seen this behavior from the Mac Operating system.

Hi,

The product name is actually an image, but that's a good idea to make the version label copyable.

The version text is now copyable in our 2018.0.2 update. Thanks again for the suggestion!
