[Klonan] Please add "Copy error message to clipboard" button to mod loading errors

When debugging mods or getting bug reports users you either have to retype the error message or take a screenshot of the error. This is a little annoying to work with. Can we have a "Copy error message to clipboard" button to make it easier to share? I know that it's also in the logs but that's harder to get access to in bug reports.

Did you ever try to to click into the text and copy it? It's not quite obvious, but that should work:

That's a different kind of error message. You can't highlight anything in the load error box, so you can't copy it.

Correct, sorry for the noise! I've been running an instance of Factorio on my desktop via ssh from the laptop (at a glorious 0.4 FPS), so I didn't want to waste several minutes for restarting the game … :oops:
