    Default Selecting specific text from an incoming sms

    I see someone asked this a few years ago without an answer so I'll ask again with new people and new technology.

    I often get sms messages with "tokens" that I have to copy and paste into another app i.e. one word/number. But I can't find an SMS app that allows you to copy a word/number from an incoming sms. I've tried stock, Hangouts, Handcent, Chomp, GoSMS, HelloSMS, 8SMS, Textra. They all allow you to copy *all* the message or nothing. Basic functionality IMHO.

    My work around is to forward the message where the stock SELECT-COPY functionality appears and I can copy the text and use it. Bit rubbish. I feel like I'm missing something. I don't think it's my keyboard since it's the app not the keyboard.

    Any thoughts please?

    Strange that you can't trim down what you want to copy. Never had to try that before, and when I did, I got the same thing, and I am using AOSP messaging. Sorry I am not much more help.
