Sorry to ask but for the life of me i cannot cut and paste on my fascinate? thanks
You should be able to long press and select the text you want, it also depneds on what browser and messaging app you're using too.
It sort of depends on where you're trying to do it...are we talking within a text input field? In a browser? Somewhere else?
ive been trying on the text and email but would like to know how on a browser also, i see where long press does let me copy in text but was there a way to copy only some of the text, in text?
In the stock browser you long press on text until a magnifying window comes up. Initially it will select the individual word that you pressed, but it will also provide a little blue pointer that you can use to select more...you almost just have to play around with it to learn how to do it. For text input boxes, when you long press choose "select text" instead of "select all" then you can select by moving your finger across the text you want.
couldnt get either to work have to mess around with the text message doesnt give me the select text option just copy text, just copy message text?
