    It should work like it does in other areas of the phone -- hold down on the text and hit copy.

    I don't know but I'm having the same problem. I can't determine if it's an Android issue a problem with the phone or a Facebook (app) issue.

    Hi. I was able to do this two days ago and then all of a sudden it stopped. I was able to copy/paste by holding finger and copy would pop up and then paste wherever I wished. No app on Google Play is working with FB. Is this my phone or is FB messing with our heads again. Thanks so much. it works for some and then not others? Don't get it.... Frustrating to say the least!

    I was having this issue (on fb, if that's relevant) and came across this post, seeing no resolve I figured out that holding down in the text area to show the curser, and then pressing the cursor itself brought up the paste button. Hope that works and stuff.
    PAISTE ✌ oh and for the record, this is what I was trying to paste, so I felt like it was necessary to paste it here, too. In strict regard to the issue of course.
    Yep, it worked.

    I think I can help you with that Facebook copy hassle with your S5!
    We have developed an app called Universal Copy that can basically copy any text that appears on the screen. It works for Instagram of course but also for other apps that prevent the copy function like Tumblr, Instagram...
    You can find Universal Copy in the Play Store here: Universal Copy - Android Apps on Google Play
    I hope it will help you!

    Thank you for suggesting Universal Copy, it works great. I upgraded my Note 4 to Marshmallow today, and found I could no longer use Smart Select (Air Command) for acquiring editable text while in the Facebook app. Thanks to you, I'm back in business.

    If the copy and pasting doesn't work already, there is an app on the Play Store called 'Native Clipboard' that should do the trick.
