Messenger+ copy and paste no longer work

    I have this bizarre problem with Messenger+, where I used to be able to copy and paste text from anywhere in the thread. I would click-hold a word and Messenger+ would select the word with handles on either side. Moving the handles allowed me to expand the selection if needed, or I could do a "select-all" to select the entire post.

    This is gone now. Now, when doing a click-hold, all that happens is that a menu pops up with limited options. Copy and paste are gone.

    On another forum they offered a procedure to fix this, but it does not work on my phone.

    Another reason why I stop using it and went to the old messenger system, that way I can view them on my phone without going into the app itself. I do not care for copy and paste, unless you can do multi window and just write it down, so you can copy it to the messenger. Sort of old school myself that way.

    Thanks for your reply Milo. I was kind of leaning in that direction. I think you're right.

    This isn't the Verizon messaging app is it?
    The "download" button at the top of the forum, for some reason, brings me to a broken link in the PlayStore.

    Had this running issue for since I got the phone, so decided only do the messenger without the plus icon, works pretty well with my family communicating with me :)
