This bug has been marked as invalid for gnome-terminal because it is a feature of bash shell.
However, should we mark gnome-terminal as impacted?... I see the benefit to the change in bash from a security perspective, so perhaps gnome-terminal needs to adapt to this new feature. Specifically, I think this behavior could be confusing to users: > If you try to select the highlighted text by clicking > and dragging the mouse pointer, the text color actually > inverts, and the text looks like it is not selected, > when it in fact is selected. For example, @Egmont Koblinger suggested changing the high-light color in the terminal, so it does not match the "bracketed paste" color. This can be done through the color profile for gnome-terminal. This is one option, but it may have implications for accessibility (people who can not distinguish different colors due to color-blindness). There may also be other things that gnome-terminal cold do to adapt to this change. Therefore, may be we should leave gnome-terminal as impacted for now, so a good solution can be devised? -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1926256 Title: Pasted text in the terminal is always highlighted and selected To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/bash/+bug/1926256/+subscriptions -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list email@example.com https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
