Copy selected records to the clipboard

In version 1, users were able to copy the selected labels from the View Labels tab so they could paste it into other applications (or elsewhere in Biodiverse).

In version 2, users will also be able to copy all columns for the selected records.

This means you can easily get a list of species and the associated summary statistics (variety, sample count and redundancy), plus any label properties that have been attached to the data.

Users can now copy selected records to the clipboard, not just the labels.  

Records can be pasted into any application, for example spreadsheets.
And if you are an R user then you can use the read.table() function.  (set row.names=1 to use the labels as the row names)
