    Long pressing a word in, for example, a text file, to copy it to the clipboard, doesn't always work. Sometimes I have to reboot too make it work. For example, I log into my online banking app and it's a pain in the butt to have to keep typing in my password so I copy it from a text file in my notepad and then paste it into the banking app. But it doesn't always give me the copy/paste popup. Is there a fix for this?

    All well and good but, back to the question, why doesn't copy/paste work as advertised?

    It's the COPY part that doesn't work from my notepad. That's an encrypted text file where I keep all my serial numbers, passwords and user names. I can't copy out of that. It also won't copy for a word on a web page either.

    After some research, it appears the copy/paste function doesn't work in all applications. I guess my notepad is one of them....ratz.
