    Can copy and paste be turned off???

    When scrolling through pages, my finger inadvertantly touches the screen and the blue "copy" highlights what I accidently touched. Can this be disabled and then turned back on when I want to use it? Your help is greatly appreciated.

    After so much complaint for NOT having a copy-paste function, it's funny to see someone complain and wanting to disable it



    There is no known setting in the iOS to disable the copy-paste function.

    However, once you get used to it, you manage to not trigger the blue selection box so often. It's in the way you scroll or touch the screen.
    Anyway, even when the blue box mode is triggered, tapping anywhere else closes it

    Just try using more of a swiping motion instead of a slide so at the end of the swipe your fingerr comes off the screen.
