    When you copy to the clipboard some text of a PDF, the component copies to the clipboard the text  as plain text (it does not preserve the font, size, italics, underlines, etc. )

    Is there any option to activate this, or any possible workaround ?

    Thank you,

    Hello Jon,

    The feature is currently not supported. I just logged it for further consideration on our public portal here:
