Poor copy text functionality from import PDF Comments panel in InDesign

I've just worked through a document after importing PDF comments. While in the main, the feature is really good, I am encountering poor copy text functionality from the PDF commenting panel. I have to try and select the text in the hope that 'copy' flag appears before I can copy it. Selecting certain parts of the text is difficult, but also noted that parts of the copy in the comment, even though not selected, are being included in the copied text including the date stamp (XX/XX) in the lower left corner as well as user name that applied the amendment – not great when it's a hyperlink you are copying. This needs to be made easier with a distinct colour highlighting in the comment box of what text is recognised to be actually copied. At the moment, it is very fiddly taking three to four attempts in some cases to copy the text you actually require.
