    Just got this droid 3 weeks ago... For the life of me I wish I could drag my finger across some sentences and copy and paste what I just selected rather then my DROID copying the entire freakin paragraph... Is there an app that lets me do this?
    If not I'm gonna be forced to go back to craptastic WinMo device due to work related reasons.

    TIA

    hold down shift key. finger drag. text is instantly copied.

    it WILL take practice, but it can be done.

    Alternatively you can go to menu key, more, select and run your finger across the text and copy it that way too.

    Either way unless somebody comes up with an app for it, it kinda sucks. Fortunately for me I don't use this function.
