Does anyone know about the copy paste problem? I'm under warranty and can't root.
I copy paste all the time. Not aware of a problem.
I have a tab 10.1 and since the last update 4.0.4 I can't copy and paste, it seems to be a problem with the Galaxy S III phone also.
I've been reading that this problem affects all Samsung's Android devices and is associated with Samsung's "touchwiz" interface. All the Samsung's customer support technical staff can't seem to do little more than keep asking for more and better problem descriptions from their own complaining customers. Been actively reported since July.
I am using Nova Launcher with my Tab because of my Touchwiz acting up. Copy/paste has never been a problem for me. My sister has the same model, is using Touchwiz, and copy/pastes just fine. My friend has the newer Tab 10.1 Note and has no trouble with copy/paste using Touchwiz, although she may have Jellybean. If there's a universal problem with Samsung devices, we don't see it. Why don't you try a different launcher and see if that helps. I use Nova Launcher and like it a lot.
