Allow selecting text in a WjFlexGrid without enabling cell selection

    When I make a grid with selectionMode="None" it prevents me from selecting any text in the cells. Looking at the styles, I see it's setting user-select: none (along with all the vendor-specific versions). I tried to override it in my own CSS like this:

    .wj-control {
    -webkit-touch-callout: text;
    -webkit-user-select: text;
    -moz-user-select: text;
    -ms-user-select: text;
    user-select: text;

    And when I inspect it in the console, it shows my styles as active, but I still can't select any text. Oddly, using "all" instead of "text" does work, but that isn't the functionality I want.

    What do I need to do to enable it?
