I have many contacts with few telephone numbers each. Some time i need copy one of number of contact to clipboard, to send it via email, telegram, jabber, sms or just put it into some text. But only one way to do this, it edit contact and copy number directly from editing line.

Syntax: In the following example when pressing and holding any contact field, email, phone number, name, address etc, the field individually shpuld be copied no button necessary.

This is one of the biggest missing functions of the.Sailfish since the beggining till now. I hope that soon the Jolla team.will pay some attention on.it.

Isn't that a duplicate? edit: I answer myself here. It is slightly different. In the call history you now have the ability to copy the phonenumber: https://together.jolla.com/question/41245/possibility-to-copy-number-by-long-press-in-call-history-released/

What's the SFOS release you are on?

I am on 2.1.1.24 and now as I just checked and indeed it works (long press on number on call log) will pop up a menu where one option is "copy"

@juiceme i need copy one number of contact from contacts application, not only from call log. =) and my version of SFOS is 2.1.1.24 too

With 2.1.0.11 it seems [As 2.2.1… is not finalized I have no access to ;-) ] the same if 'only' a number is in view which is not assigned/associated to a contact.

As stated by Mohjive at question/41245[full link above at leszek's comment]: for unsaved calls only. For existing contacts no option to copy. I think it would need to offer what number to be copied, as a contact can carry multiple. [again: my view with 2.1.0.11].

I think we need functionality to.copy directly from call log and to copy number or any detail.without going to edin mode.

that is not answer.. why you put it here? do you read comment under question? Convert it to comment, or just delete. And copying from call log is already work.

In thinking beyond clipboard, could the 'share contact' option enhanced with what we have at the N900. I have created specifically https://together.jolla.com/question/165719/missing-to-select-contact-items-to-be-shared-by-vcf/

Actually - use the drop down curtain when you opene the contact. Use share - you can email, sms and use bluetooth.
