Description

Would like to select chat text and include the format codes when copied with a new copying context menu option.
Then when pasting text copied this way it still has the colors, bold, etc

I'd be in favor of this, too.

Quassel currently intentionally strips formatting on paste, but a "Paste formatted" option would be nice. I'm unsure if copying from Quassel includes formatting - I don't think it does, but there should be a way to provide multiple copy formats (a plain-text and a formatted one).

KDE's Konsole has an option to save as plain-text or HTML, which makes a nicely colored self-contained HTML page - that might be nice as well if it's not much extra effort.

I believe quassel omits the format codes on the copy not during pasting, I can copy from a text file that has formatting codes in it and paste inside quassel and it's not stripped.
