    This must be a fairly frequently asked question, but I couldn't find any discussion.
    People seem to have found solutions for Droid 3, which also lacked the Menu button, by long-pressing the capacitive menu button, but the same maneuver doesn't seem to work with Droid 4.

    Any breakthrough?

    Might be another way but press and hold the menu button does work for me with:

    A - Select All
    C - Copy
    V - Paste

    Now I see why long pressing the menu button doesn't work for me. I have a foreign language IME installed, and long-pressing the menu button toggles between the foreign language and English.

    So, is there another way to do this?
