Seems that text selection doesn't work when a TextField is readonly.
I have the following code:

TextField {
    text: "hello world"
    readOnly: true
    background: Item {
        anchors.fill: parent

And long-pressing the text doesn't do anything at all. As soon as I set readOnly to false it starts working.

By default read-only text fields are not focusable. To enable copying and magnifier you can make the field focusable with property assignment TextField { focusOnClick: true }.
