    Before anyone says "read the friggin manual", mine has been thoughtfully re-written by Orange and is thus useless.

    Usually, you select the text you want and press the menu button, move to the Edit menu, then use cut/copy or paste.

    Not all apps support this though, so it might not work everywhere.

    Is there a way to do this only using the keys?

    I have also been annoyed by having to break out the stylus to copy\paste.

    On the Sony TG50 (keyboard device) and, if memory serves, the Treo 90, Control-C = copy, and control-V = paste. I think an "option" key on the T90 served as a "control" doohickey. Worth a try (still awaiting the Tmo T600 <sigh>). I found a bunch of similar keyboard shortcuts on both devices by experimenting.

    BTW, there are two copy/paste aides at PalmGear, both OS5 friendly.

    Freebie (works fine; YMMV)-- freebie CutPaste

    Any application with an edit menu should allow menu-c, menu-p and menu-x for copy, paste and cut respectively, as well as a few others.

    I don't know any way currently of actually selecting text using the keyboard/d-pad.

    Thanks for the CutPaste5 link and the "menu + key" help. I was able to use CutPaste5 to highlight and the other functions such as underline, strikethrough, change font, Thesarus and Spell check, BUT could not get it to paste. So I decided to put it together with the menu + p button -- I was in business!

    (If there is a easier way to paste, somebody hollar. I could not get that stylus part to work for me.)

    position the cusor on the item you want to select, and press menu-s. It selects the entire item. The problem is that this is frequently more than you really wanted to select, but you can always delete the excess after you menu-c (copy), and menu-p (paste).

    I'm out of my mind. But feel free to leave a message.
