    Default copy, cut, paste function

    I am having great difficulty using copy/paste function with text on websites using my N4. I have searched and instructions say there is a action bar that comes up. I am able to isolate and highlight text, but can't find a copy/cut function. In emails I think I can, but not on websites. Can anyone enlighten me on this? Thanks

    Hate to reveal how dumb I am, but you are right and my silly experience might just help someone else, ---so I was "testing" the function, and did what you show above, realize now that after highlighting, you have to click on the icon(3rd from right above) which I did before. But I then was opening my gmail to compose to test the copy paste "and" I realize I was trying to paste into the To: line, not the compose area and couldn't get the "paste" message. Thank you for clearing this up. I love my N4 ----

    I'm still struggling unfortunately. Can select the text from the browser but get stuck then. The third icon from the left opens a selection like messaging, email etc. But if I want to copy a phone number and call it or website, I cannot figure out how to do it...

    It's the second one that looks like a piece of paper.

    And FYI for most phone numbers you just have to tap them in the browser and it will take you to the dialer automatically.
