Re: How do I Copy an error message to a text document, as text?
Hmm curious, With just the text selected; CopyAs -> Plain Text and then Cmd-V into TextEdit worked for me. I don't see why BBEdit would be any different. Mind you I only tested on 4.1 and 5.0. Maybe something was different in 4.2. If the cell is chosen, then a pesky From In:= line gets inserted, but just selecting the text worked.
