Summary

can't script the copying of text from PDF in Web Viewer

Description of the issue

You can't script the copying of text from PDF in Web Viewer. Used to not be able to do this for HTML in WV (prior to v10), now need to be able to do this with PDF text; in short, the Script Step "Copy" should operate on anything that can be copies to the clipboard; if the "Copy" menu item is actionable, this script step should work. The fact that you can copy the text manually but not via the Copy script step indicates this is a bug.
