Just got an HTC Evo Shift 4G. It has many features that I love, but cut/copy is just horrible. I'm a very heavy user of text editing on smartphones, so finding a way to address this failing is crucial. I'm just trying to cut or copy some text - three or four words - from one place in a Google Doc or a Catch text file and paste it somewhere else in the same file. So far, this has proven to be impossible. I'm ready to thrown the thing in the trash and go back to my Treo 755p, on which this sort of thing is trivial. (I'm spoiled, I suppose; I've been using Palm OS devices for a decade now.) What gives? How can Google sell an operating system that lacks the capability to select a range of text for cutting or copying? Is it still 1979 in Mountain View? Any suggestions or workarounds would be met with extreme appreciation.
