The copy feature in the native fingerterm is not working anymore.

I tested it on my Jolla phone and Jolla tablet with the same result.

How to reproduce

  1. Install/activate developer mode to get fingerterm
  2. Open fingerterm, open the menu (the 3 bars on the top right corner), select the 'Select'-feature for 'Drag mode'
  3. Now mark some text in fingerterm
  4. Go to menu again and click on 'Ctrl-C' or use the 'ctrl'-button + 'c' on the keyboard
  5. Result: The clipboard is still empty/ has been not updated

I'm not sure if copying has ever worked like that in fingerterm, but usually ctrl+c is not copy in terminal context. There are separate copy and paste buttons in the fingerterm menu.

@Keto Oh yes you are right, there are actually own 'Copy'/'Paste'-Buttons which I didn't notice beforehand (and appearently forgot about) and which are working fine. :)

Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for your answer.
