Select and copy text from "Write and send eMail request" dialog in GRIB plugin fails under Windows 10 a computer with a 64-bit CPU. Some Windows computers might not have this problem.

Not sure what is going on with cut and paste. I tried it on Win10 and Linix and with two different keyboards. When I try to select the formatted message for the grib request, the selection keeps disappearing before I can copy it.
Is everyone else able to select from that message area?[/QUOTE]

I have the same problem when attempting to copy text from the "Write and send eMail request" dialog in the Grib plugin. I am running Windows 10 (Anniversary Update) on a notebook with a 64-bit CPU.

My builds of OpenCPN from clones of the Master branch on GitHub with commits made on 20 May 2016 and earlier behave as expected for the select and copy from the text box. I can copy the text to the clipboard.

Builds from the Master branch after 22 May 2016 do not copy the selected text. The selection made with a mouse or touchpad is reset before Ctrl-C is keyed. Also, "Select All" from the right-click menu seems to do nothing, and "Cut, Copy, Paste, Delete" remain faded out.

Also, the 4.2.1 Beta Windows version from GRIB2 branch has the same problem with select and copy of the Mail text. This was released on 09 Mar 2016 with a link in this post:

[QUOTE=bdbcat;2067758]Ahoy GRIB2 testers...

I have posted a new github commit correcting several problems noted in this thread. It is available on github as branch "GRIB2".

I have also built a Windows installer, and uploaded it as before. Here is the link.
