    Droid Doesn't...Nevermind, yes it does!!

    Advertisement



    Droid does not seem to allow copy and paste in emails. I found how to do it in sms and how to copy text from web pages and have searched heavily for a way to do it in emails but have not found it yet. Also some apps incorporate this ability such as Twidroid. I almost never copy or paste from email so I won't miss it, but for some business users this may be a problem. If anyone knows of a way to do it but I just didn't find it, please let us know

    EDIT: thanks to a chat with catstide who has had more hands on time with the Droid, hold the up key on the physical keyboard and then touch and drag your finger to select your text....yay, thanks cat

    Thanks for the tip. I wasn't aware of that.

    Hows the double tapping for zoom working? Do you think they will ever corporate the pinch zooming?

    It's not as nice as pinch zooming on my iPod Touch, but it's certainly a huge step past my 8330 I saw something about pinch, not sure if it was rumor or when they said it may be out....

    I hadn't seen the video, but maybe a post talking about it...hope to see it soon, it is much better than double tap. Maybe in one of those software updates that are supposed to come in the next couple months...

    Touch and hold in the typing field and you will see the option pop up.


    Hey if anyone figures out how to increase font sizes let me know!

    While in the browser, I noticed if you hold the menu key and tap the letter "P", it will take you to the browser settings. There you can adjust the text size. As for font size, haven't seen anything.

    Thank for replying to my question.....

    NP, I was hoping to find a way to make fonts in emails etc a bit bigger.

    I tried the Spare Parts app but it didn't work.
