Copying User names

In the old forum you could copy and paste the forum members name if you wanted to reply specifically to them - useful for those with symbols as well as letters in theie "handle". This does not work now - is there a way of doing it?

Woolwell You got it - I was trying to highlight by the more usual way of a left to right swipe as normal copying. Thanks to other responders.

Have also discovered you can do the 'left to right' swipe as well if you are careful to position the mouse cursor just to the left of the greyed email envelope. Cursor is an arrow, you have to be careful not to move it too far or cursor changes to the 'hand' to signify a link and then the copy function is not available on the rightclick menu. I find the 'right to left' is easier to do.
