Copy advance search results in clipboard

Is there a way to get the advance search results in clipboard <Ctrl + C> so that the documentation of the work flow can be done easily and in more presentable manner.

Hello Ankit, just to clarify your question, using Advanced Find, for example in the attached image, searching for “Equity” within the sample model called Integrated Financials…

Did you mean that you want to highlight something on this page then copy that string to the clipboard to paste somewhere else? Or did you mean you want to take an image of the whole thing (like I did with a screen grabber)? Or something else?
Thanks for the question.

That’s correct.  I’d like to copy the entire results in clipboard so that I can take it elsewhere for documentation.

Hello Ankit,
That is a reasonable enhancement we can make to the feature.  What would be the format you would expect for the copy?  Plain text, image, xml?  Understanding the use case will helps us better design the feature.

Dear Braddo
Yes, if you are considering the same in enhancement then keep the copy format in plain text to take it to other program for documentation. Also, consider if the user wishes to export names of all matrices and categories in csv file for documentation of the work so that it can form part of policies and procedures.
