BUMP


I'm having the same issue! and I'm unable to directly click on a link if it's sent thru an email!!!
 
you cant. rumor is it MIGHT be an option in the update coming our way
 
Lolwut, what a fail. There's no select text option or select all option? That goes against the whole "smartphones can/are mini-computers" idea
 
forget copy and paste what about the ability to CLICK on a link via email!
 
Does it not work if say you are inthe browser and hit menu<more< is there no select text option??
 
ARe you guys completly serious? It comes without select/copy/paste functions, AND it is unable to use links from email?

HUGE FAIL! the origional droid had these!

(weather or not they came in an update matters not, the droidx is supposed to be an upgrade and does everything the origional droid did AND MORE!)
 
Go to app store look up clipboard manager {Clipper} it's free!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
By the way to copy text on in browser goto >menu>more>select text> then drag your finger across the text. Then back out goto {Clipper} app and select text and bingo! Kinda drawn out but it is what it is...

You dont need to use clipper. After you've copied the text: in any text field you can long press and choose paste. Easy money. I do it everyday

I need to copy information from an email not the web... so menu doesnt work

What email program are you using? It works with K-9 and with the native Gmail app. If you're using the native pop3/imap email app, switch to k-9 (a million times better). :)

Open the email, go to menu/more/select text - slide your finger across the text that you want to select. Then go to the place you want to paste it and if it's a K-9 new email , long press where you want to paste and select paste from the menu that pops up.
 
Yeah, but there is still no way to see what's on the clipboard. Without an app.
