Copy button on code popups in 6.0
I really like the new feature in 6 that allows Ctrl-C to work to copy sections of scripts. However, I am missing an easy way to copy the entire script from the code pop-up. The copy button use to do this when nothing was selected in the pop-up window. Restoring this functionality would be appreciated.
SQL Prompt 6.1 has now been released and has the copy button returned to the popup.

I think this button needs to be restored too. I don't even understand why it would ever be removed...

Please bring back the 'Copy' button back in production build! Installing Beta 6.1 to restore productivity.

Arrgghhhh WHY would you remove this button?
Yes, it's now good you can highlight a section of script and use ctrl+c (why you never could is a great mystery) but now my single click copy that I am so used to is now a two click process.

Sadly I am uninstalling V6 and going back to V5, I cannot afford to lose productivity.
Right clicking and selecting copy when nothing is selected should copy the whole contents similar to what the button used to do. Would this work for you or would you still like to see the button restored?

Yeah I am mad you removed that quick copy button in v6. Can you bring that back guys.
I am also missing the Copy button on the pop-up for the summary. In version 5, I could use this to grab a list of columns and their data types very easily. (for creating a temp table or copying structure).
