WP7 Nodo - can copy.... um, how do I paste?!

    Morning all,

    Got myself a WP7 htc on Sprint that comes with the NODO update already installed.

    STUPID question, but I can't work out how to paste!

    As an example, in Internet Explorer, I can click the address bar, the address will be highlighted with the selection bars and the copy icon appears. I click that and it copies. I then click outside the address bar just to remove focus and once again click inside the address bar. My question now is how do I get the paste icon to appear? (It will once again show the copy icon but not the paste one - the paste icon only appear immediately after copying).

    I'm sure I'm doing something really stupid, but no matter what I try, I can only ever get the paste icon to appear immediately after I have copied some text. I've tried click and hold, double click - everything.

    Hope I've explained this clearly and I apologise for such a stupid question, but if I can't work it out, then there's got to be a lot of end users who are struggling as well.

    When the input keyboard comes up on a text field, there is a paste icon above the letters in the same space it puts auto-completion words and it's used in the same manner as selecting an auto-suggest.

    Once you copied something a small icon should appear at the top of the keyboard(on the same line with suggested words).  To paste same content multiple times swipe to the left on the suggested words line and the paste icon should reappear.

    Thanks Herbie - that's the issue, sometimes it's there, sometimes it's not. It's pretty random, at least on my device. Seems like it may be buggy.

    I'm also having issues selecting text on a webpage - I've managed to do it a couple of times, but most of the time I try and fail...
    Much as I generally dislike Apple and their products, they do seem a lot simplier specifically with selecting, copy and pasting.

    I think you mean swipe to the right. Wink

    Make sure that you're tapping ON a word rather than between them. The selection markers come up without fail. It's best to tap on long words rather than indefinite articles and first person singular words. Wink
