Ok I've played with locked, traversalOn, and disabled and the only

prevent the editing of the text.

Set a field to use locktext, traversalOn, and autohilite. You can select and copy text without the ability to edit. Command/Control-C is built into the engine so you don't need to know what the selection is, the engine just does it. Your scripts don't need to do anything to accomodate this.

You can't double-click a word to select it, but you can drag.
