Select text in texarea

There are many question/posts regarding this issue. Some are resolved in ionic1.
I don’t see any good solution on ionic 2 or 3.

I built a NotePad type app and published it.
Then I noticed,
Cannot select text in the textarea, cannot copy or paste in the textarea. My app became useless.

I was trying to follow

Tried - 1 CSS
-webkit-user-select: text;
-moz-user-select: text;
-ms-user-select: text;
user-select: text;

Tried - 2 JS
But, cannot fine “ionic.js”, I think the solution was for olver vesion of ionic.

Is it possible to select text in the textarea?

Problem is with <ion-textarea>,
but plain <textarea> doesn’t have this issue.
