My last mobile computing device had a really straightforward copy and paste protocol. Tap once and the cursor is inserted there, double tap to select the whole word, triple tap selects the line (or maybe the whole paragraph). To be honest I don't really recall the specifics because it felt pretty much exactly like using a mouse. Once the selection was highlighted I could 1) press the physical menu button on the device, 2) tap and hold would bring up a context menu, 3) if I was in a text entry box and the vkb was visible, I could tap the copy/paste menu on the keyboard. All 3 options would allow me to copy something to the clipboard, and I could copy virtually anywhere in the system (like Windows, system dialog boxes can't be copied, but almost everything else could). So now I've moved to Android, which is a much newer and supposedly more advanced OS, and copy and paste is something that doesn't seem to work in any kind of consistent manner. A tap and long hold seems to most the time bring up the text selector tool, but not always. But then when the selector pops up and you want to select more text so you grab the handle on the right side and drag it to the right to get the next word, and all of a sudden the left anchor switches directions and you have a totally different set of text highlighted. Whenever I finally get that straightened out and have the right couple of words highlighted, I then look up and see that my popup bar that is supposed to give me the option to copy the selection is nowhere to be found. If I'm in a context where there is a vkb showing I can try a keyboard shortcut for copy and paste, but sometimes that doesn't succeed in copying to the clipboard, and after spending 20 minutes trying to get it to work I just use a pencil and paper and then rewrite it in whatever app I was trying to paste to. Anyone else have these issues? Tips to make copy and paste 100% consistent across the system?
