I was playing around trying to know my Droid better and ran into the option Menu/More/Select text, and it has a message said text has been save on clipboard.
Where is clipboard? How do I delete the text I accidentally saved?
I wish they covered all these features in the owner's manuel.

Same concept as on a computer. It's just some space in memory. No need to worry about deleting it.

Gotcha. Thanks. Figured that part out. What about copying text from received emails?

what do you mean? long press .. if I open my gmail ... open an email ... and hold press on the screen ... it does nothing UNLESS i long press over an email address within the email body for example... then... it pops up

"send email" or "copy" options

You guys know you can hold the shift key and do a finger drag to select text right? I do that in my gmail all the time.

hmm yeh but it only works some times and in some apps.

selecting and copying text is one of the negativetives about the Droid.

Ok, but I only seem to be able to copy the portion that is visible on the screen at that time....not able to continue scrolling and copying a long article.

I think you are screwed. I just tried copying and pasting and I can only get a fixed portion of the text and when I move my finger, the screen scrolls. That's pretty useless.
