Any idea how one might copy text from an email (one received or one being written) onto a clipboard (ditto paste from clipboard into an email being drafted)?
The email client is K9 (not using any webmail).
In Windows and Ubuntu, highlighting text and then Ctrl+C (or via the menu system) will copy material to the clipboard in most contexts – is there an equivalent for Android?
NB These may be two distinct questions!!
copy and paste is a general Android feature that will work universally across all apps. Or should do at least!
Just press on the word you want to copy, it should be highlighted and you’ll see two blue pointers. To expand the selection, move the pointers to the start and end of the email. I believe a “select all” button appears if you want the lot.
There are some instructions in the Android 3.0 Guide (I can’t find an Android 4 guide!) page 57.
Tried this in K9mail and it works as you say… Yes, a Select All button does appear.
