Copy and Paste - trackpad no, Cmd yes

Since OS Monterey I am finding that holding the trackpad and drag over text doesn’t do anything in Drafts. It doesn’t do anything at all.

Cmd+ drag over text works.

Cannot reproduce here…anyone else? Is this using an Apple trackpad (like built-in on a laptop?) Is this specific to Drafts? You are able to select this way in other apps?

Problem solved. Somehow in Apple preferences Trackpad/point-and-click/ I had ‘Look up and data detectors’ checked and it was interfering with highlight and copy.

Is there a way to mark things as solved?
