hold the text you want to copy until the magnifier pops up. then slide across the text you want copied and press the 123 button on the keyboard and click copy
the to paste, do the same but press paste

Hmm.. I see another update just came out on cydia. I'll DL that and try again because I wasnt getting any option on my keyboard.

You have to be able to select the text (hold down on text and the magnafier and keyboard will pop up)once up hold and slide your finger to left right up or down. The text will then have a gray box around it. Then hit the 123 button and a new menu will appear above the keyboard you select copy and you will see the text next to the copy/paste buttons. Now the text is in the clipboard. Now where ever you can edit text you bring up the keyboard and hit the 123 button and press paste.

Haven't tested it extensively yet; but it works; only issue is if it isn't an editable document (e.g. a received email -- unless I click reply; or a website), I can't get the selector or keyboard to pop up; but a great start, if this can be resolved -- am i doing something wrong?

I cant get it to work. The text isn't getting highlighted at all. So, press the text and get the magnifier; at that point, when I drag my finger, shouldn't whatever i highlight be gray?
Got it to work finally! Had to enable the performance boost in intelliscreen.

yes been testing it out it works through the keyboard so anywhere u can type u can copy paste with the up button it is a major step in the right direction

works, but a little annoying when you actually want to use the magnifing glass to edit some text, cause you cant drag the cursor anymore... because you will be highlighting the text. The paste didnt work with YouNote(an app store notepad), but did with all the native apps(safari, text, notes, email)
Step in right direction... but to tell you the truth isnt that important to me at this time... when we have MS Word on the iPhone, then I will be more excited for this functionality

just saw this also and am very excited!
edit: i just started testing it out and it seems to work great! EXCELLENT work to the devs!

The copy and paste buttons seem to be disabled for textboxes within webpage on Safari.

ive read that it doesnt work well with already existing text on webpages, only in areas that you can type within the OS (notepad, address bar, etc)

Don't work very well in phone contacts. Crash back to winterboard every time i press copy.

it is in beta right now, so im sure everyones gripes will be taken into consideration with future updates....it looks promising though which is a good thing.waiting on my iPhone 6+
01-20-2009, 06:34 PM #15
it seemed to have disappeared from the ispazio source. can anyone confirm? or i'm just crazy.

It used to work great for me but then I upgraded late last night and now it seems to be crashing apps. I'm not too worried though since it's still in beta and I'm sure another update will be coming soon...21.5" iMac 3.06 GHz Intel Core i3 l 15" MacBook Pro 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7 l 17" PowerBook 1.67 GHz

a few things i would like to see fixed:
1) I would like to have the ability to copy text from a text message that was sent to me (i.e. when someone sends a MMS i would like to be able to copy the MSG ID and Password)
2) When typing and you bring up the copy/paste menu, it covers up the text field, making it impossible to see what you are typing. Is it possible to move this menu up one slot so that it is on top of the text bar?
3) There should be some sort of double tap gesture to initialize the copy/paste selecting action because without it, it is impossible to slide to move the cursor to a new location in text.

Finally a copy paste feature; the iphone is boring without it jailbroknMy new download/upload

I too would like to see a SBsettings toggle. Sometimes I dont want to highlight text,and just want to zoom in between two letters to correct spelling etc. I think I'll use the normal function rather then the highlight text function. If I could leave copy/paste OFF by default and doa quick finger swipe at the top via SBsettings to toggle copy-paste on/off that would be perfect. I'm not sure if that would require a springboard reload though.
EDIT: new version does exactly what I wanted above! (only no need to disable it)
