Long press on the text and cut/copy options will appear at the top....long press again to paste. I don't believe the stock keyboard has an option for arrows, but many replacement keyboard apps do.

Thank you for that heads up! Though, wish it was easier to paste (coming from a Lumia 950 XL, the paste button is something I miss oddly).

With Swype Keyboard, it's way much easier. There's button on the bottom left corner of the keyboard from where you can swipe to a/x/c/v to select all/cut/copy/paste respectively.

Here is the full list of gestures:
