Bug ID: 62419
           Summary: Flow: copying from a Flow board pulls in lots of
                    unwanted/invisible text
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: master
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: Flow
       Web browser: ---
   Mobile Platform: ---

If you select text on a Flow board then copy and paste it, the selection
includes a lot of unwanted and invisible text: the titles of the trio of
collapse icons, text from hidden action menus, the additional rollover text for
timestamps and usernames, etc. These appear as
 Edit header
    Small view
    Collapsed view
    Full view

A solution is to add "user-select: none" and the vendor-prefixed variants to
these bits of HTML. (resources/mediawiki.less/mediawiki.mixins.less should have
a .user-select(none) function that generates the full set of
-webkit-user-select / -moz-user-select / -ms-user-select: none properties.)

Bug 62413 (Flow: show less chrome for Printable version of a Flow board) is
related but applies to a different subset of Flow board elements.  Users might
be surprised that visible pieces of text aren't part of the selection, although
e.g. skins/common/shared.css does this for the TOC "[hide/show]" and section
"[edit | edit source]".
