When using Safari Developer Mode, I've encountered two oddities:

  1. "Search" tab: Enter a search, click search result (left), then mark text in source viewer (middle), then click Ctrl+C (or right-click and select Copy). Result : Entire source is copied.
  2. "Elements" tab: Highlight link: Right-click and select "Copy Link Address". Result: Nothing is copied.

Am I using it wrong, or are these in fact bugs in Safari?


Safari Technology Preview 61 fixes one of the issues. Per the release notes:

Web Inspector

  • Fixed copy from Search results content view

These would appear to be bugs in Safari, I can reproduce them in Safari Technology Preview 58. You can report bugs to Apple by following the steps at developer.apple.com/bug-reporting.

  • Good to see that ones reports make it back to the responsible programmer. Did you test this? I don't use betas. – forthrin Jul 20 '18 at 19:43
