    Hello and welcome to the forum! It's good to "see" you and I hope you enjoy your visits ,

    The clipboard is a virtual/software thing. Once you've got the message that something has been copied to the clipboard, another press and hold of your finger (in a text input field/app) will show another pop-up that will include the "Paste" command.

    The text will stay on that virtual clipboard until you copy more text. Then, the new text will overwrite the old.

    Hope this clarifies.

    I mean that you need to be in an app (or input field, if you're on the Internet) where you would normally get the typewriter. Someplace like a search field, the Notes app, etc.

    For example, if you we're copying text, you could paste it in the Notes app (after selecting Paste that pop-up) - but you wouldn't be able to have any place to paste text in, say, the Photos app. The Photos app doesn't do text, so you wouldn't even see that in a pop-up.

    Hope that clarifies.

    Hi Barbara and welcome also to the forum. Hope you enjoy it here.
    I can't describe it better than Marilyn above, but these two screen shots may also help.
    In a text field (like your post here) I can copy any part of your post by holding down on the text, when the "Copy" option will come up. I can move the blue dots around to highlight just what I want to copy...like this
    [​IMG]

    Then I can go to any other text (here I'm staying within this post) and choose the spot to which I want to copy that piece of text....like this
    [​IMG]

    You can see that the "Paste" option comes up, which when I press, finishes the Cut and Paste operation...your sentence is put here..
    [​IMG]

    Hope that helps. Don't hesitate to ask if there's any more head scratching about any of this:)
    Regards, Andrew
