Is there anyway I can drag the text out from terminal and release in some other terminal or text file?

I am asking for a laptop, where a touchpad is used.

As @souravc suggested, instead of actually visually dragging it, you can copy paste using your mouse/touchpad and without involving the context-menu.

To copy select by dragging the text to be copied.

On a desktop: To paste, middle click where you want to paste.

On laptop: Press both the left click and right click together.

@rajagenupula: While copying or while pasting? Do you have any shortcut set for any of these key combinations? Which version of ubuntu and gnome-terminal are you using? –  Jobin Feb 17 at 6:49
