Select All, Copy is also copying the Table of Contents html

I've found an annoying behavior in the preview window. If I hit select all and then copy and paste the formatted text, it also includes the table of contents at the end in a black box with links to the file on my hard drive. If I carefully select everything without using Cmd-A, then I get the behavior I intended.

    I'm not seeing this behavior on my development version, so I may have inadvertently fixed this already. Does it happen on all files, or on particularly long ones with a lot of items in the TOC?

    I've tried it with files with only one header and it still copies the table of contents.

    To be more specific: If I hit select all, then copy, then paste into a blank textmate file, the table of contents info appears at the bottom of the document. If I paste into something more rich text or html text friendly like a gmail compose mail window, the table doesn't appear in the compose window but does appear in the sent message.

    I'll have to look into this further, thanks for the report.

    I'll even raise you one:
    If the mouse pointer hovers over an image and I then select all and copy text, the table of content and the mouse-over message from the bottom of the Marked window gets appended to the selected text. See appended image for an example.

    Maybe this helps to get rid of this slightly irritating behavior.
