In Lightroom Classic (latest version), how do I copy a photo's camera EXIF data (Model, Lens, Aperture, Exposure, ISO) so I can paste it in a text file. I want to include the EXIF data with a photo submitted to a photo sharing website. From what I've read, it appears that this is not possible within Lightroom and, if that's correct, are there other applications that will do the job?
Haven't had any luck with running lr2mogrrify and exiftool. Thanks for your advice.

It depends on what you want to display. Many photo sharing websites read the EXIF data in the header and will display that. Those that don't often will read the Title, Caption or Description from the file header and display that. If the latter is your choice then you can embed the tokens for Model, Lens, Aperture, Exposure, ISO into the Title, Caption or Description fields in Lightroom
Alternately John Beardsworths' Listview Plugin » List View. Will generate a text file or spreadsheet.
