Why the Beep?

Q: How can I save the message from the Why the Beep? dialog to the clipboard?

A: Lou D'Andria (lou@wolfram.com) writes: You can specify that messages appear in the Messages window (or in the notebook itself)--from which you can copy it to the clipboard--by setting the appropriate suboption of MessageOptions (either WarningAction or ErrorAction) to include PrintToConsole (respectively PrintToNotebook).

1. Open the Option Inspector dialog (Format Option Inspector). Check that the scope is global (if you want the change to apply to all notebooks), and then locate MessageOptions by typing in "message."
2. Modify WarningAction to include WarningAction or ErrorAction.
3. Modify ErrorAction to include WarningAction or ErrorAction.
