How can I copy and paste text from an email? I use K9. Any help appreciated.
It can be done but it's kind of hard. I don't know if K9 will help you at all but what you got to do is long press on the part of the email you want to copy then use your finger to highlight the text you want copied. Then you select menu button and copy.
It's not easy to do and pretty much a flaw I think in Droids. Copying in other areas is not difficult at all.
Thanks Hook. That did not do it though. I do appreciate the help!
It didn't? No it sure didn't. Motorola Droid: Cut, Copy and Paste Text
I couldn't get it to work either.
I looked everywhere and apparently cut and paste is not an option in email. Sorry, I could have sworn I tried it before and it worked. I remember it was difficult to do. I wonder if I was thinking of my old Blackberry Storm?
Thanks. That is definately a feature my old BB Bold had that I used.
In email, try this, open the keyboard, hold the shift key and then touch and drag to highlight the text you want to copy. When you lift your finger off the screen the highlighted text will be copied to your clipboard.
I think you can hit reply, then scroll down to the "quoted text" and you should be able to select and copy text from there.
I will give both a try. Thanks!
Works amazingly! Thanks for the help here. I like the little cursor that shows up haha.
In K9 both reply and forward allow you to select and copy text. Not so in native email. One more reason I love K9.
Both work. Thanks for your help!
