how to copy phrase from "messaging"?
When I receive a SMS sometimes I want to copy part of the message into another program...but I can't find a way to copy anything from a message
Am I missing a trick here?
How do you do it?
The way I do it is to choose to forward that message and then, when the message can be edited, I can select text.
The same is with text from a note: if I want to select text, I have to click to edit the note.
When you are in "messaging," touch and hold your finger on the message that you want to copy, and slide your finger to the left, and a copy button will appear.
By the way, if you slide your finger to the right, a trash-can/delete button appears.
Sliding things seems to be a common way to reveal more functionality in Ubuntu Touch.
Correct. That is for copying the whole message to clipboard.
