How to select text in Android
Android: This is how you use the clipboard to copy and share texts
The clipboard is there so that you don't have to rewrite a text that you want to send to several people. We'll show you how you can copy, paste and share text there with your Android smartphone.
If you are working on the computer, you can simply copy text with a keyboard shortcut and paste it in another line. On the smartphone, you can just as easily process entire text passages using the clipboard.
You can not only copy, cut and paste your selected text passages, but also share them directly with friends via various chat or mailing services.
We will show you the necessary steps in our instructions below. We collect more tips and tricks for you on our overview page for using the basic functions on Android.
Android: Copy, paste and share text with the clipboard
Highlight a text
Open the text you have entered or call up a website in the web browser from which you want to copy a text passage.
Then tap on a single word and hold it down for a few seconds until it is highlighted in blue.
Drag the little blue icons to the left or right to highlight other parts of the text.
Copy and share a text
Tap on "Copy" to save a text on your clipboard.
Tap on the three dots on the right and choose "Share" to send the highlighted text to friends.
Alternatively, you can hold down an empty text position until an options menu appears and tap on "Paste" to paste the text into another position from your clipboard.
With the clipboard you can copy and paste pictures as well as plain text. You can copy the pictures from the web browser by holding down the picture and selecting "Copy picture". However, you cannot insert the pictures correctly everywhere, sending them via e-mail is perfectly possible.
