How to highlight, cut, copy and paste using a BlackBerry Z10 smartphone

How-To

To highlight, cut, copy and paste text, follow the steps below.

To highlight and select text

To highlight text, touch and hold the text. To change your selection, use one of the methods listed below:

  • To select all, tap and hold followed by tapping Select All
  • To shrink or expand your selection, move the cursor indicators manually
  • To select text automatically, continue holding your finger to increase the selection size, i.e. word > sentence > paragraph.

To cut, copy or paste text

  • To copy text, touch and hold the selected text followed by selecting Copy
  • To cut the text, touch and hold the selected text followed by selecting Cut

  • To paste, touch and hold where you want to paste text followed by selecting Paste

You can also copy and paste images, links, and more. For example, when you are using the browser and you find an image you’d like to send to a friend, you can use the Share feature to send the website address, or you can tap and hold the image, and within the menu that appears, you may have the option to copy the image address instead.

    […] devices, and that’s the copy and paste feature on your BlackBerry Z10. Well the folks over at Inside BlackBerry Help Blog have a very nice how-to on the subject that we have come across and thought we should share with all […]

    How do you copy and – specifically – paste into the phone? BB7 is great for business as when you see a phone number on a web page you can copy/paste into the phone area where you would type a number (or simply click the number) and whalla your calling. On my Z10 – find a lot of back & forth to make a call from a website.

    This is just another example of where someone doesn’t want to come clean. Every time I try to get someone to tell be whether or not the Z10 can copy and paste pictures, I either get an answer about text or a flimsy answer like the one on this post.

    Ty said the Z10 could copy and paste pictures. But when he explained it, ZAPPO, it can’t. He said tap and hold an image. Then you will see that it may give you an address for the image. That, my friends, is not copying and pasting a picture.

    I guess I can’t get a straight answer because the Z10 just can’t do it. Something that simplistic should be common on any smartphone.

    PS: The apps for the Z10 SUCK.

    I can highlight, copy and paste from other applications on my z10, but I can’t seem to do it from Facebook. Please help.

    The usual “Tap and hold” technique for Copy and paste does not work in the Contacts on the BlackBerry Z 10. Any ideas?
