copy/paste on inc...?

why hasn't anyone mentioned the fact that andriod has a problem with copy/paste? I made the move from an imagio (terrible device, but WM 6.5/sense was great), to the inc. I love the change but I am still learning and reading about linux, etc. I have tried some of the copy/paste programs out there, but i can't figure out what to do with them! i can't understand why the base froyo OS doesn't allow touch and hold copy/paste in any field/ap like in WM. It feels limited to me in this area. Copy/paste seems to be a function built into each individual app, not into the froyo/droid OS. Some apps allow you to move text with share, but i need to select the info I need to move, not necc. everything. Is my understanding correct in this? I keep searching and reading and I can't find anyone addressing this, am I missing something? I also really miss the ease of moving from one feature to another in WM, such as getting from sms to email, to contacts etc with one swipe or menu list. Is there a way to add/customize froyo menu's or add/costomize touch and hold menu's in froyo/driod?

Re: copy/paste on inc...?

I have found the Incredible's copy and paste to be simple...maybe it's just me

Example: I go into my email, find the line I want to copy, hit menu, more, select text, simply highlight the fields and it copies automatically to my clipboard for pasting where ever i want.

Is that not simple enough or do you need more options?
