When copying text from dialogs and windows via "screen review", separate lines are merged in one single line #3900
Reported by k_kolev1985 on 2014-02-20 08:04
Steps to reproduce it:
Actual results: All lines of copied text are merged in one single line, with no separation at all (not even a space) between them.
NVDA version: next-10380,9ee9b11, but this occurs with 2013.3 as well. According to some users, this started in 2013.3. My guessing is that it has something to do with the "screen review" mode, because if I'm not mistaking, that mode was introduced then.

Technical: It should be fairly simple to fix. DisplayModelTextInfo.clipboardText should use getTextInChunks and then join them with CRLF, similar to VirtualBufferTextInfo.clipboardText without the call to strip.
