Copy and Paste from email to a new email

Does anyone know how to copy a small section of text from a received email to a new one?

 

Nothing happens when I press down... the option to copy does not appear.

Re: Copy and Paste from email to a new email

Friend unfortunately you can select a piece of text on the Blackberry 10.

 

It's very good point because what you say when you want to select only information we have the option of copying and copied completely.

 

I would like to superiors as the OS Tester, Moderators and Elite members take into account this information, since it is necessary to select information to some extent you want to select the information.

 

It happens only in email but also when receiving a message PIN or a Blackberry Messenger PIN you can select the information to some extent you want, only have option to copy and copy all, it is not recommended.

 

Regards.

I just tried on my Z10, and I can indeed select a bit of text from the body of an email I've received. It's tricky and with my big fingers I can't always see what I'm doing correctly, but if I hold on an area of text that I want to copy, the two blue start/end selectors will appear, and I can adjust them to select the block of text that I want, and then copy it. Then I can create a new email and paste that into the body of the new email message.

So, all I can recommend is to keep trying...I can attest that on my OS level on a Z10 it indeed works.


Good luck!

 

PS -- I also tried on my Q10, and it works as well. I can't however test on a current 10.1.x.x OS on the Q10 as I am presently running a 10.2 leak on it. But, at that level, it works as well (easier, actually, than on the Z10).

Re: Copy and Paste from email to a new email

I have been trying for days now and it just doesn't work... like you said, it works on z10... don't know why it doesn't on a Q10.

Re: Copy and Paste from email to a new email

I found a work around... after trolling through tons of pages on google ....

 

If you change the font size to 10 or above, copy and pasting becomes easier... not just on emails.

 


Change your font size
  1. On the home screen, swipe down from the top of the screen.
  2. Tap Settings > Display.
  3. In the Font Size drop-down list, tap the size of font that you want to use.

Re: Copy and Paste from email to a new email

Ahhhh...excellent find. Indeed, the system that senses where your finger is and, therefore, what to do, indeed would function better with a larger font size since your finger would then cover less of the area.

Good luck!

Re: Copy and Paste from email to a new email

I'm using a 9 pt size on my #Q10 and text selection works fine. On OS 10.1 and 10.2 the same. The copy & paste icons will vary with 10.2, but basic touch & hold to select is the same.

It must have been a bug, because I have changed the font back to my original font setting  (size 8)  - both copy and paste are working fine from emails now.
