Search yields lousy results. Anything new on this functionality or does it really suck?
Are you asking how to do it or if it has been improved?
Can't be done...in email anyway. I miss it dearly.
You can copy and paste in email, I do it quite often. Menu>More>Select Text, then drag over the text you want to copy. Then long press where you want to paste it and select Paste.
Yeah it works fine. Not the best, I wish there was some sort of tapping gesture or something that could activate the select text option. But works nonetheless. I don't do too much copying and pasting anyway on my phone.
I wasn't sure if it could be done. Thanks for the answers.
I don't get that option in the gmail app =\
According to THIS article it is a new feature in gmail 2.2.1, you can download it HERE.
Thanks for the heads up, but I need Froyo to use this..which I currently lack. =\
I've tired to install leaked version countless times, but no luck (get that moto logo bug).
Does anybody know if you can copy and paste in my hotmail email account through the web?It looks liek I cant,maybe im doing something wrong??
When on the page MENU> More > Select text then drag accross the the words. Then long press to paste.
The menu button does not work within the body of an existing email. I can only cut/paste in an active text box that I'm replying to. What good is that? I need to get something from an exisiting email. Please help if there is an answer.
I am unable to select text in the built in email app (for ANY system besides yahoo email) to select older text, as was previously said -- "that I'm not actively typing".
Pretty nuts to have this tiny computer in hand, and to have copy/paste/cut/etc in several apps but not ALL apps.
