Hi Shompinice,

In our component, by default without a toolbar, we could select the text, and then copy it by clicking the copy button that appeared after selection. Could you kindly give additional information and examples of how text selection may be used in a toolbar? Could you provide us more information so we can offer you a better solution?

Hi Shompinice,

We have run your application. Please do provide more details on your requirements for the text selection toolbar feature. We have tried to enable and disable text selection in the button. The modified sample is available as an attachment. For further details on the feature, please do refer to the documentation you have already shared.

Hi Shompinice,

We have run the sample you have provided, and text selection is working as expected. From the video you have shared we suspect that this might be an issue related to the PDF document. Can you share the PDF document in which you face issue in text selection?, so that we can assist you with better solution.
