Your last paragraph is exactly what I am referring to.  Now that I have dbg 
installed for kde, when I click on Details a lot of information shows up.  It 
doesn't tell you how to use the information it provides, apparently you have 
to know that before you install the app.  But the only way I have been able to 
copy the data on the details window is to expand to full screen, take a png 
and open Gimp and reduce it to about 20% of its size to get a jpg small enough 
to be acceptable to the moderators.  It gets close to 40kb then and still can 
be read.

It seems there must be an easier way; I just don't know it yet or how to find 
it.
