Tested with Jolla's own Sailfish Browser: After writing text to the field, there's no possibility to select or copy the writing (active text) to clipboard.

Reproduce:

  1. Open a web page with normal text input field (e.g. new Tweet on mobile Twitter site, or translate on Google)
  2. Write something to the field and try to select part/all of your writing - you can't

Pasting text into the field works just fine.

  • Workaround for copying text from inside a text field: use an Android browser
  • Workaround for copying text from the page content: Use webcat browser (Sailfish) or an Android browser

Edit: I was actually expecting the copy to be possible after I saw this question answered as [released] https://together.jolla.com/question/4064/sharing-clipboard-with-android-applications/ but it seems that was only for another way. So, copy from Android browser and paste into Jolla browser works now, and I hope to see this feature to another way around as well.

@simo, as this is not a new issue, isn't this question a duplicate of https://together.jolla.com/question/15795/text-editing-in-browser-is-lacking-features/ ?

... and for the page content part, https://together.jolla.com/question/832/system-wide-clipboard-copy-paste-capability/
