    On either a regular ipad or an iphone I have always been able to copy from a webpage in Safari and then paste into another application such as the notes app, or whatever. Yesterday, my wife purchased an ipad mini for the purpose of doing just that at her job, but so far she has not been able to perfom this function. Does the ipad mini take away the ability to copy and paste from a website???

    Nope I do it all the time. It does seem to take a second touch occasionally but otherwise works great.

    This is with the mini? What we have seen is that altough the option to 'copy' is always there, there is no option to 'paste' in the second application. The most common apps we are using are Safari to copy from and then Penultimate to paste into. Any thoughts?

    I might sound like a noob, but if you haven't already, try resetting safari and possibly the iPad itself.

    Yeah, I thought of that. When she gets home from work in a little while I am going to suggest we try that.

    Nope can't get it to work in penultimate unless I copy from within the app. Works in everything else though so it appears to be a problem with penultimate rather than the mini.

    *edit: works great in Notes Plus also

    I've reset and it still doesn't work. I can't paste from any app into Penultimate. All other apps work fine

    Wow I just tried Notes Plus. Impressive features but totally useless if you use a stylus. One of the best things about Penultimate is that you can set it to ignore your wrist when you write using a stylus. With Notes Plus on the other hand, if my wrist touches the screen the app will either totally disregard any stylus import altogether or the entire page will zoom.

    Dave, I have actualliy discovered that I can paste photos into Penultimate but you're right, it won't accept copied txt from Safari. Bummer. At any rate, it appears it's not the mini. Just have to look for another app I spose. Do you use Notes Plus with a stylus?

    Never mind. I have figured out that you need to pull up that area on the bottom which enables the program to ignore my wrist. Terrific. Thanks for making mention of the app Dave. This will work just fine.

    Yeah I've been using both for a couple of years now and still can't decide which one I prefer. Some stuff works better in one and other stuff works better in the other. Glad you found it helpful.

    I think Penultimate is a bit more intuitive, I like its structure of showing the closed notebooks as its file management system, and I do think it's wrist protection IS better (not having to pull up that wrist pad). On the other hand, Notes Plus seems far more powerful. I will keep them both as well.

    You can't paste text into Penultimate because it does not have a text entry mode. You can either draw or paste pictures. That's it.

    If you can't type something into an app then you can't paste text into the app. Does that make that makes sense?

    Now, if you are really determined to use Penultimate and don't mind the extra steps (and un-editable text), you could take a screen shot of the Safari page, use something like Skitch to crop it, then past the result into Penultimate as a picture.
