Allow text to be copied from messages in inbox on mobile app

It’s super basic functionality to be able to highlight and copy text on a mobile device. I have professors sending messages on Canvas with zoom links for classes, and I can’t highlight and copy the link text from these messages in my inbox. I’m trying to then paste them into a document I’m making with all of my class links. Even if it were another student sending a message with the titles of some books I should look at for research, I should be able to press on the text, highlight it, and copy it. I’m using a new iPad Pro running the latest iOS. Seems like a pretty fundamental ability that is missing.
