G'day, when I copy text off a website it says 'text copied to clipboard', this is all fine, but I can't figure out how to retrieve the text. Is it a problem with my phone, or just me in my ignorance :grin:

That's easy: open any kind of notepad or anything with a textfield. Then long press into it and choose "paste".

I never see the paste or clipboard option.
This shouldn't be this hard. This is a basic function on every platform.
The fact that so many people are asking how to do this would make you think GOOGLE would want to patch this.
