I'll have to check about disabling the export, but know that simply having the export capability disabled will not prevent copy/pasting from the web-page.

What do you call a 'normal user' ?

I don't see that a user with a tester role has that capability.

Is it too extreme to make anyone, that is not admin, a tester?

I guess I'm still not clear on the goal, if only admin would only have control, but that would seem to achieve the desired behavior.

Well, yes and no.

I was starting to get ahead of myself for potentially suggesting a [custom] way to disable the export button, but the way I would have suggested the change would disable it for everyone, INCLUDING admin.

The NO part:
There is not an option to only disable the export button.

The YES part:
Access to the export option is controlled through the rights for a given role. So it IS possible to remove rights from roles that expose the option. This is where I asked earlier about making all non-admin users testers, and they would not have this capability.

I no longer have any TL 1.7.x information, so I'm not able to look back at the sources.
