Is it possible to copy highlighted items from Tableau?

0 votes
I have a Tableau workbook that connects to a database and has several sheets in it.

Is it possible to highlight the numbers and then just copy the highlighted values not the entire row name for each item?

Is there any means by which I can copy just the numbers, nothing else?

I don't think it is possible,

As it can be seen from the following Tableau threads:

various incarnations of your request have already been asked of the development team that has yet to make it into Tableau. I also couldn't find anything in the user documents that describes a workaround.

There's a way to do this using Python and probably AutoHotkey if that's of interest - both options are hackish.
