ContentSelectable

ContentSelectable
is an option to constructs such as Inset, Graphics and GraphicsGroup that specifies whether and how content within them should be selectable.
  • Possible settings are:
Truesingle clicks immediately select content objects
Falsecontent objects cannot be selected
Automaticdouble-click allows content selection (default)
  • Even with the option ContentSelectable->False, a complete graphics object is itself selectable.
Allow the individual graphics objects to be selectable by a single click:
In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=
 
No individual object is selectable; the whole graphic appears as one object:
In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=
 
The first click selects the whole graphic, and subsequent clicks select individual objects:
In[1]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[1]=
