Copying and pasting from Word Press to Text reader no longer working

    That's the gist of it. I was able to press the text, hit select all, copy, and then paste in the Text Reader app with no problem, then it stopped working for no apparent reason. If I look at the tray, it shows a blank document.

    It will allow me to copy and paste small amounts of text (still from WordPress to the Text Reader app) but no longer lets me copy and paste the whole text (and it used to!). I tried rebooting the phone, clearing the Text Reader cache and emptying the tray...still no dice.

    Oh, By the way my phon is a Samsung Galaxy A52 5G (which isn't yet listed in your hardware list ;) )

    What text reader app are you using? Maybe try a different one.

    This may sound dumb, but did you try restarting the device?

    Also, has the app been updated lately?
    Sometimes updates are more trouble than they are worth.

    the op did say he tried restarting the device.

    ........so you can only copy and paste small amounts at a time? how much space do you have?

    mikedt 你好

    Could be that the copy and paste was intentionally disabled. Which apparently can be done in WordPress...


    "Recently, one of our readers asked us how they can prevent text selection and copy/paste in WordPress?
    Many publishers who want to stop people from stealing their content may want to apply this. This basically just makes it a bit harder for people to copy text from your website."
