When I contact MultiCharts Support I always go to the Help -> About screen and copy my exact version number and User ID there for the information of the support employees.

However, selecting information with the mouse in this window is a pain because the window automatically closes when you click just outside the line to be selected.

I would be able to much more quickly and convenient provide this information if I can press Ctrl - C in the About window and MultiCharts automatically prepares text like the following in the Windows clipboard:
Version: {multicharts version}
ID: {userID}

This saves me the annoyance of having to repeatedly open the About window because it closed due to a misclick. The benefit for MultiCharts Support is that it is easier to provide this technical info, with probably more people doing it so when this is easier.

Forget to add, but I believe this feature request is especially helpful for users with a laptop. I can't imagine that users with a touchpad can conveniently select the importat information in the About screen.
