I suggest you ...

error dialogs should be copyable

From time to time Visual Studio throws up error dialog boxes. These are modal and the text from them cannot be copied. Often I want to paste the information.

I suggest you provide the ability to copy text from any dialog box. If that is impossible because of so many dialogs, then some quick and simple way of OCRing the text.

    Absolutely agree. I am sick of trying to type complicated messages into google. I don't care how it's done. A right hand mouse button would do. That would work as an 'afterthought' as all that would be needed is a few mouse-action delegates.
