Copy/Paste citation text

I am a long time Papers 3 user for Mac OS.  I made use of the feature where you could copy the citation as text to the system clipboard.  I think you could set a preference for the format of the citation.  It would be helpful if I could do this in the new web App.

I also want ReadCube Papers to copy the citation (Author's name, Title, Journal, years, etc.) as favorite journal format as you want to use, like Papers 3.

It is very useful to make presentation slides and put a reference on the slide.

Yes, absolutely, this is a must!

Former user of Papers3 who stumbled upon this huge limit this morning while preparing slides for a conference: here I am. Copy citation to the clipboard is a must-have

I agree. Current version (4.0.27) will copy metadata but this  lacks volume and page number which is useful when putting in citations to lecture slides and presentations where I don't need the entire abstract. 

Need for this function

This is now partially implemented on the web: Copy -> Reference. We are working on expanding this feature to allow you to pick your style.
