Copy & paste the info here... you can't, can you?

Apologies for being slightly OT: I wonder why it is so difficult for AOO
to fix the 'Help|About' so that we can again copy & paste the product
information (version build etc) info/data on that window?

They've certainly made sure that you can C&P:

But can't figure out how to allow the user to C&P the product
information... ala " 3.4.1 AOO341...".
