Students selecting text in a textbox

I would like to display the contents of a text variable in a textbox (no problem).

I would then like students to be able to select the text, copy it and paste it in a text entry box where they can modify it. The problem that I encountered is that the students cannot select the text in the textbox (and so cannot copy it and paste it). Is there a way of doing this?

Thanks

Andrew

Hi Liam,

So sorry. Not sure what happened. I have edited the link above and tested it and it's now working. If you have the opportunity to test it and time to let me know if it works, that would be great.

Also, let us know if you need a different solution, so the community can jump in.
