    Yeah takes time to figure these things out. You would think there would be a manual or something. Anyhow you got it working that's all that matters.

    So just so I understand correctly you can only copy what you're typing? Not something on a web page or off an email. I've tried everything and can only get it to work when going an email. Where is the clipboard btw?

    To copy/paste from a browser without the physical keyboard you go to menu > more > select text. Next, you select and drag over the text you want to copy. Releasing the screen confirms the text was copied. To paste what you have just copied you long press in the text or email field where you would like to send the copied material and select paste. Hope this helps.
