From the Getting Started with Android - Tips and Tricks, Cut, Copy, Paste, and Share section:
Cut and Paste Other Content
You can also copy text, photos and more from web pages, and other sources that are not in a text box.
• Select a word: Press and hold the word. Drag the green end markers to select more or less text.
Double Tap to Select a Word
• Select text beginning with where the cursor is now: Just touch where the other end of the selection will be.
• Copy: Tap the Copy (icon to the left) to copy the text, photo, etc.
To paste this content that you have copied into an email, text, Facebook, etc., open the other app and Paste as described above. If your phone has a physical keyboard, press and hold the shift key and then drag your finger over the content to copy.
I think that link is for somethong other than the epic. Probably sense ui.
Epic does not copy and paste that easily.
But thanks for the tip on holding the shift key. Hopefully it'll work in the browser

In general, in areas where you can type text, you can usually long-press in there, and a pop-up appears offering a paste option.
But, that may be app-dependant, so it may not work all the time.
I do wish there was a more accurate way to copy. I've been using the shift-drag to copy non-editable text, then pasting into a new note, edit out the stuff I don't want, then copy using shift-arrow keys on the keyboard within the note editing interface.

long pressing will work for any text editing app. like anywhere where you can input text. at least i havent ran into one that doesnt permit it.
and i already knew about long pressing. thats just basic. i was talking about in a browser

And for the record, I know of the basic ways to copy/paste.
I was looking for shortcuts or apps that will help make the process easier such as holding the shift key or maybe and app
