    Copy and Paste -Droid X

    There was a terrible sinking feeling I got when I realized my original iphone couldn't copy/ cut and paste. My droid will copy web segments but my biggest need is to cut text from an email. Example, I want to forward part of an email to a friend but not the whole email. It doesn't seem like I can do this in gmail. Of all the applications for this phone to be limited in, you wouldn't think it would be gmail

    Please let me know if I am missing a clever way to cut forwarded emails.

    Also sometimes it is nice to copy part of an old email and paste into the body of a new email

    Those are great questions from both of you that I'd love to have an answer to as well! I haven't tried to do either of those things yet, but I know I will soon, so I hope someone can figure it out.

    You open up the menu and select copy text. Paste by pressing and holding on the text box you wish to copy to

    Long press on the URL in the browser, Copy URL and you can paste anywhere.

    Correct, the GMail app doesn't have it so you need to access GMail in your browser if you wished to copy/paste something.

    I asked one of the reviewers about copy/paste from an email and they said it was possible without going to the browser. I don't have my phone yet so I cannot experiment. Try long press on the text in the gmail app though.
