Re: copy/paste for tablet

In the open doc, tap and hold over the phrase you want to copy.  Move the pointers to enclose the phrase. Tap copy.  Go to where you want to paste.  Tap and hold in a space then tap paste.

And the same will work basically on most all documents, emails, messages, websites and URLs on the PlayBook.

Re: copy/paste for tablet

Its not on the keyboard. Its on the screen when you tap and hold it. There will be a pop up for copy/paste.

There are no buttons.

 

Once you've touched and held your finger on the screen  of text long enough, you will see a pop up with various features of "copy, cut, paste" etc. Those choices may vary.
