I am frustrated beyond belief. I can't find the right forum!
This is is a SILLY question... how do you copy text on this great tab 2 ? Cannot seem to do it. Especially on Facebook.
Any ideas?
Looking for other tab 2 newbie friends who will share my frustratios as I learn this tab. I had the original 7 galaxy Samsung tab and loved it. This 10.1 is awesome and can do such more. Not having a manual sucks so I have to learn by trial and error.

Any ideas are surely welcome!
