Description

If I drag from right to left on one of the bulleted items, for example:
virtual void setCheckable( bool )
, and then I paste it into a text application, it produces this pasted text
(starting after the begin and before the end)
---------begin-------
#
virtual void setCheckable ( bool )
-------end---------

What I'm trying to do is simply copy that one line and be able to paste it into
my code for QT, but instead it puts in the # and/or * sometimes (depending on
how deep the list is).  I think if only one line is being selected, it should
just copy the letters I selected.  This is the behaviour I get from other browsers.

I do however like when for instance, you select a large amount of text in a
bulleted list several levels deep, that it adds those *'s and #'s, but the
linebreak between the # and the text is annoying.

I'm not sure if I put this into the correct component (sorry), it might also
happen in mail too on html messages with bullets, though I can't confirm that.

The behaviour I got from copying and pasting large lists is:
#
int insertItem ( const QString & text, QPopupMenu * popup, int id = -1, int
index = -1 )
#
int insertItem ( const QIconSet & icon, const QString & text, QPopupMenu *
popup, int id = -1, int index = -1 )
#
int insertItem ( const QPixmap & pixmap, int id = -1, int index = -1 )
#
int insertItem ( const QIconSet & icon, const QPixmap & pixmap, int id = -1, int
index = -1 )
#

the behaviour I would have expected is:
* int insertItem ( const QString & text, QPopupMenu * popup, int id = -1, int
index = -1 )
* int insertItem ( const QIconSet & icon, const QString & text, QPopupMenu *
popup, int id = -1, int index = -1 )
* int insertItem ( const QPixmap & pixmap, int id = -1, int index = -1 )
* int insertItem ( const QIconSet & icon, const QPixmap & pixmap, int id = -1,
int index = -1 )

(without the # or * at the end)
this is when you select multiple full lines in that document.

hope you can help!
thanks
