Select and get selected text in panel

Feature request to make text selectable.

Use case:
Michelle is working a multi-language translation plugin and when she selects a text scenenode on the artboard the plugin translates the text to another language and displays it in a div or paragraph or text area. She then selects the text from the language she is currently working on and then copies that to the clipboard and then pastes it into another artboard specific for that language.

Occasionally she wants to look up a word. So she highlights or double clicks on the word in the panel and clicks a button called “look up”. The plugin gets the selected word or text and translates it for her. This is all thanks to being able to highlight, select and get the selected text.
