You should set ClientSettings->Selecting->EnableDragToSelectRows to false.
All the best,
the Telerik team
When multi-row selection is enabled and EnableDragToSelectRows property is true the default text selection is cancelled. This is necessary as the functionalities would contradict each other. There is no way to determine if the user is dragging the mouse to select rows. Or dragging to select text in RadGrid.
Because of this if you would like to enable text selection you should set the EnableDragToSelectRows property to false.

How do we set the EnableDragToSelectRows property to false using the Telerik UI for ASP.NET MVC (powered by Kendo UI) grid? I have this applied:
.Selectable(selectable => selectable.Mode(GridSelectionMode.Multiple))
...and need to disable this so the users can select and copy text. Thank you!
Please open a separate thread for each unrelated query you may have. This would keep the information in the current thread more consistent and easier to find.
With that said, if you would like to enable text selection in a kendo grid with selectable rows you can use the approach described in the following thread.
If you have additional queries related to Kendo UI or the MVC wrapper please submit a ticket in the corresponding section.
