In KDE's PDF reader "Okular", at startup, text selection is set to "Draw a rectangle around the text/graphics to copy". I'd like to have it set as "Text Selection" by default.

How to do this?

This I read from the official documentation Okular, I hope it's the answer to your question

Tools ! Text Selection Tool (Ctrl+4) The mouse will work as a text selection tool. In that mode clicking left mouse button and dragging will give the option of selecting the text of the document. Then, just click with the right mouse button to copy to the clipboard or speak the current selection.
