Click to copy text snippet in Confluence Cloud


I can't believe that Confluence do not have a copy button that on click copy the contents of the snippet / div to the clipboard.

Sometimes I ask myself if Atalssian team use theirs software in daily activity. In Confluence you have your team documentation, if you must to send a part of text from one page via email to your customers wouldn't you want it to be easy? No app from Atlassian marketplace offers this functionality.

On Confluence latest iOS app (iPhone) you don't even have the option to select the desired portion of text because this functionality is not implemented in the app. So its impossible to copy a desired part of text as long as you cannot select a part of text. Confluence should be renamed to READER or something similar!

We are talking here about Confluence, a software designed for documentation that does not have the copy / paste option integrated. It's like building a car without windows.

It turns out confluence Snippet does provide "copy" in view or edit mode for snippet macro: 


but when you put the snippet inside a cell of a table under a "Table Filter", the "copy" icon will not show rendering "copy" inaccessible.

Almost all users who look at code snippets will likely be taking a copy of it to the clipboard, perhaps just to test it or play with it in a playground.
