To clarify, @cuteulala's suggestion can help prevent accidental interaction in the window from pausing the console which can effectively lock it up until you type something like return.

Quick edit mode in a command shell window though does let you select and copy text in the console, which can be useful for issue reporting, etc.

These sorts of helpful notes to users might be better recorded in an OpenSim wiki page.

Further to that, it's easy to turn on/off quick edit at will for any console window by:

- right-click on the title bar of the console window
- select "properties" from the drop-down menu
- on the "Options" tab in the Edit Options section you can toggle on/off Quick Edit Mode
