    Hi there,
    A rather silly question. I can highlight a portion of a text but how do i copy and paste say from dropbox to an email?

    Are you able to highlight all the text you want? Once it is highlighted, go to the email (or wherever you want to paste it...) Long press, select "paste "...

    It does not work! I selected and highlight the text but when i copied it does not paste. A small text in DROPBOX but the paste option does not appear in the new email

    I did all that but i believe the problem is with the "dropbox "
    Application. When i select copy i was informed that i need the full version for that.
