    Coming from the DInc, I loved the copy and paste feature. It seems to be missing on the X. Or am I missing something.

    I accidentally did this once or twice on my D2. No idea how I did. I tried bringing up the browser menu for an explanation, (Some things are MENU + (some random button)) but cannot recreate my C+P... :(

    I was reading another thread and they said to do a long hold and it will bring up the C+P menu. I tried and it worked for me. (D2 2.2)

    Menu > More > Select Text

    Unfortunately, it is a rather painful method of swiping your finger over the text you want with no chance to resize/correct your selection. Just gotta get it right.

    Long-holding only works in text boxes, it doesn't work to select text on webpages.

    This is a pain in the ass process. I usually miss the first few meters and then have to fix it after I paste. And that's a whole new set of problems. :mad:
