android (Archived) Copy and paste support would be nice

Recommended Posts

It would be nice if you could copy and paste from a note.

Specifically, I have some addresses in Evernote, and I'd like to be able to move them into google maps navigation without retyping them. This doesn't seem possible with a touch screen phone.

I noticed the gmail app doesn't seem to allow copy and paste either, but gmail is able to detect an address and you can click on it to get the option to send it to maps.

I'm using droid incredible with android 2.2

You can copy and paste information when you are in the "edit" mode.

Select "edit note" from the menu. Then long click on the body of the note and you will get a menu with the "select text" option. You can then copy the information and paste it into any other app.

GMail works much the same for copy/paste.

Well, what do I do when the note is rich text? Don't I have to make a new, plain text duplicate note just to be able to copy and paste? I'd rather not have to do that.

Should be easy enough to test: try it and see... then report back so that other can share your experience.

Seems the holding on an address to call maps thing did work today on a note- but it was a bit sticky, I had to keep pressing it till it worked.

Adding an image on EditText works fine. However, copying an image is another problem. When I insert an image on EditText by using ImageSpan it shows correctly, but I copy inserted image, EditText shows me only 'obj'.
