Why can't texts be selected on Flutter webpages? Are there any SelectableText widgets?
Any opinions on this? https://github.com/flutter/flutter/issues/32246#issuecomment-569154029
I understand and respect why keeping behavior consistent with other parts of flutter is desirable, but I also think there might be a better compromise to be struck here -
If you go to twitter.com, nytimes.com, github.com, etc, 95+% of text is selectable.
Breaking this assumption will cause some negative emotional reactions towards flutter web apps from users and developers, and that it's worth reconsidering the intended behavior here. Text behavior is a common smell test for "is this a native web experience?".
Even if this behavior stands for the time being, do you think another solution, such as using the Theme to store whether text is selectable by default, could be considered in the future?
