On Sources tab I'm trying to copy selected text by pressing Ctrl+C (in Windows), but text is not being copied, instead I hear standard windows beep sound. If I right click on selected text, there is no copy menu item. It used to work in previous chrome versions.

Chrome vesion is 28.0.1500.72

And this is context menu enter image description here

@Oliver Salzburg♦ Hello, what is your chrome version? Mine is 28.0.1500.72 m. And my context menu is different from yours(see post update) – bogert Jul 28 '13 at 13:58
I have the same version. – Oliver Salzburg Jul 28 '13 at 14:00

The issue is caused by "Use CodeMirror editor" option checked in inspector's settings. Having this option off resolves the issue (you need to close/open inspector)

It seems like CodeMirror integration is still an early experiment and doesn't do anything useful.
