Dash datatable - text column delimited with spaces copying entire cell


I have a datatable cell with space delimited strings, containing primary keys that I have grouped-by and melted in Pandas into one column as below

identifier1 identifier2 identifier3 identifier4

Etc… I limit my datatable display to only show the first 10 identifiers .

If I try to copy just 1 identifier via standard copy/paste though, I get the entire cell contents - all 10 identifiers with spaces in between - copied to my clipboard, even though I only had one identifier selected. I’ve tried shift+copy and shift+select using my mouse after seeing some earlier mentions of this issue, but this didn’t work. Has anyone else encountered this, and is there a configuration or workaround? Thank you for your help!
