vscode Cannot right-click copy text from markdown preview window TypeScript

Does this issue occur when all extensions are disabled?: Yes

- VS Code Version:1.56.2 - OS Version:Ubuntu 18.04

Steps to Reproduce:

1.Open a markdown file (.md) 2.Open the markdown preview window (F1, Markdown: Open Preview) 3.Highlight some text 4.Right-click and observe that no context menu appears, i.e. right-click does nothing.

Expected behavior is that when right-clicking, a menu appears with conventional options (copy, inspect, etc.).
