It's already there -- Configure Take Command / Advanced / Linux-style selection.

(There won't be any additional new features in v14.0; it's long past that point.)

Cool! Wanted that for a while. Except ... I think it moved :(

So checking the help file:
This dialog, available from the Options menu in Take Command, contains four pages or "tabs" of options that let you change the way Take Command looks and works.

Ok, I got a little confused, as I saw 9 tabs. Then, I realized I was in TCC, not TC. However, I was reading the help file from TCC. So, that probably needs some clarification.

In any event, I was going nuts as I couldn't find this option. So, I went into TC, configured the option, and then found TCC also started doing copy to clipboard on mouse release.

Nice! Now I won't consistently keep hitting 'enter' in my putty sessions :0

Still, should there be a way to change this from TCC?
