We are no longer able to Select/Copy information from the List & Document Library Details pane Nothing happens when we try to select or highlight. Tried with different browser (IE, Edge, & chrome)

enter image description here

Can select and copy from the details pane in a different tenant enter image description here

Any suggestions on how to fix this.

In the modern experience, the detail information panel (right panel) for displaying properties of an item does not allow users to select any content in that. Thus, you cannot select and copy any thing in detail information panel. Users can only copy content in edit mode.

To work around this, you can switch to classic experience by clicking “Return to classic SharePoint” in the bottom, left corner of the page to switch to classic experiences. Users can copy field values including multiple-lines of text field values in classic experience.

  • It was working all these days and is still working in another different tenant Selecting and copy is possible from the information/details
