bug: selecting text in an output viewer shouldn't toggle it


If I make an array in a cell like a = [1, 2, 3], and then I try to select the [1, 2, 3] in the visible cell output, observable toggles the view of the array to an extended version, making it impossible to copy/paste. A click should toggle, a drag that makes a text selection should not toggle.


You can work around this behavior by typing Command-C (or equivalent) before mouseup.
