    i don't think you can actually access the clipboard per se. once you copied some text, you can only use the 'paste' option. i doubted you can stack copied text to clipboard, thus able to retrieve more than the last text.

    perhaps someone can correct me if i am wrong about this.

    I guess if you go in to a text based programme, email/sms or maybe a notes programme and long press you may get the paste option for the last thing that you copied.

    AFAIK you cannot access the clipboard on the Arc. Copy/paste functions work as usual: press and hold->Copy... press and hold again->Paste and that's it.

    Cheers!
