Highlighting text and pressing ctrl c should copy that text. Instead workbench copies the whole row. It works everywhere else on the OS, even in the sql editor, but not int the result grid.  

How to repeat:
Always happens

Suggested fix:
Make CTRL C behave like it does everywhere else and default to copying highlighted text.

While this is by design it makes sense to support 2 shortcuts, one to copy a cell and one for the entire row. Alternatively, the context menu can help here.

The context menu works to copy highlighted text. It just takes longer than a simple ctrl c. It really adds up when you do it hundreds of times a day. Maybe ctrl shift c could copy row and ctrl c for the highlighted text?

Just to clarify, Its not always the entire cell I want to copy. Sometimes it will be one word in a string within a cell. Its just once ctrl c is pressed, the whole row becomes highlighted on its own.
