OS 4.1 is now available from iTunes.
If you start to use your Symbian S60 5th edition smartphone for data entry in a variety of applications (e.g. Notes, Messaging, Calendar etc), there is a very useful way of working with text amongst a variety of applications in a variety of situations.
Here are a few suggestions of when you might use Select, Copy, Cut & Paste.
- Scenario 1 – You might receive a text message or email with some text that you would like to copy & paste into a new ‘Note’.
a) With the message open, select the text/email with your finger/stylus, the command ‘Copy’ will pop up, tap on it, you see the statement: “Text copied to clipboard”.
b) Press the menu button and open the ‘Note’ application, select ‘Options’, then ‘New note’, then ‘Options, then ‘Editing options’ and Paste.
- Scenario 2 – You might have some text in a ‘Note’ that you would like to copy & paste into a text message or email to somebody.
- Scenario 3 – You might want to send a phone number, email address, website address or postal address from your contacts to somebody. Open the contact, select the text, copy it, open a new text/email and paste the text into it.
Copy / Cut / Paste – is a VERY useful facility, it is selected from the menu (e.g. tap on the screen button with three horizontal lines, between the green tick and ‘abc’).
