    copy and paste

    I was wondering if the new copy and paste works with the internet. I can't seem to get it to work so I've been using the old method.

    I agree, it would make it a lot easier to perform the operation.

    Sorry for the ignorance but still learning the ins and outs of a BB. I have only had my BB for about 4 days so could someone explain the copy and paste? I am running the .114 Hybrid. Thanks!

    Ha Ha no worries

    ok so let say your typing a message and you want to go back to a certain part well before the hybrid you could but it was a pain in the butt well at least for me lol, well not if you select the part you ended typing and move left or right you will see a little box's pop up that will high light that area or move left or right.

    Here is a link a little more about it

    Using two fingers, touch the beginning and end of what you want to copy.

    If you do it right, part of it will highlight and then you can expand the highlight by using just one finger.

    Touch the beginning and the box will move there, then slide your finger to include which text you want. then do the same with the end.

    It takes some practice, and you will see what I mean. I will try to put a video up for it. I think that will be helpful to a few people.

    By the way, make sure your swipe sensitivity is set up too high(6).

    I got it to work in the browser ONCE (granted, i've only had your .114 hybrid installed for a short time now) - it was very hit or miss, and I couldn't explain how I did it if I tried.... I've even gotten the copy/paste box to come up on the text in the window that comes up on the lock screen if you hit a button.

    yeah, the web is where you want to use it a lot of the time...

    hopefully either the new hybrid or the next leak will take care of this.
