The documentation of the menu option "Copy All to Clipboard" claims that it copies "the whole contents of the terminal screen and scrollback to the clipboard in one go."

However, it does not copy any text from locations on or after the current cursor position.

The first release this feature was present in is 0.51.

Update: This has been fixed. However, we've decided to make it copy only up to the last non-empty line on the terminal, in case anyone was relying on something like the old behaviour.
