- go to an item, say Einstein: http://www.wikidata.org/entity/Q937
- triple-click inside a description, say the English one, to highlight the text
- copy the selection
- paste it into a text editor (or email, ...)
Expected: the text is pasted
Observed: the test plus preceding and following new line is pasted
Workaround: Carefully move the cursor to the beginning of the text, click and hold, move the cursor to the end, release click. Then copy, ....
The workaround is much slower than the triple click and error prone (might miss the first or last letter). Alternatively, after pasting, a line break might sneak in somewhere unexpected (say in code leading to a software bug - this has happened to me some weeks ago despite me carefully checking any code changes).
