Copy current timecode to clipboard when copy/pasting text from transcript
Add current timecode and speaker info to clipboard when copy/pasting text from transcript, allowing editors to make selects from interviews and paste quotes into a text editor.
@Kerstin Ebert - the copied timecode should be dynamic (ie - it changes based on the current text selection) Right now, it just copies timecode however it's already segmented in the transcript. We need the ability to select text *within* those segments and surface the timecode specific to those bytes.

As a workaround, you can export the transcript as TXT or CSV file which allows you to copy the timecode and speaker name.
A great solution. It will be clear where exactly the piece of media with the speaker's voice came from. Informative and important.

This would be critical for my workflow, and improve what is becoming a very useful function.

Without an option for timecodes, I could never see using this system. Seems like such a waste to not have the option.

Thank you Jordan for suggesting this critical improvement. Without the ability to copy over TC along with the text, it creates more steps and motivates producers to stick to a third party transcription service since we rely on TC to script and hand over to editors.

This is an absolutely necessary tool for producers in order for this feature to be relevant in their pre-production workflow.
