Regarding an older version morgs said: "This is a problem in hippo-canvas. We might migrate Chat's UI to plain GTK at some point (which would fix this) - the main issue is the nice roundboxes that hippo gives us. "

Hope to raise the priority for this issue. See this as a major blocker in effective distance collaboration.

Speak with chat text to speech will be very handy, particularly if you are not in the same place, this is because in fullscreen, its a very good way to communicate while sharing an Activity. You get an alert while the shared Activity stays full screen. Its then the logical way to share text fragments rather than running a parallel Write session.

I am presuming that text to speak chat in Speak will also inherit this behaviour from Chat.

Speak activity uses a widget from Chat, it will be useful if someone will implement text selection feature there (most likely it will mean switching this widget to pure gtk from hippo-canvas), later it might be reused in Chat.

Chat was already ported to Gtk widgets, and now we can copy from the text from another user. A limitation is we can only copy one block (rounded box) at time.
