    Cutting and Pasting?
    I'd like to be able to cut and paste from websites and attach them to an email. Any idea how to do this?

    Did you try simply cutting and pasting into the e-mail? That works more often than not. What exactly are you trying to cut and paste?

    You could do as above which usually works, or you could open TextEdit and copy Text/Image or other and copy into that then use the TextEdit as a attachment.
    Not sure how much of the copy and paste that you need but ill put up the keyboard shortcuts for you.
    HTH

    Highlight Text/Image or other
    Copy ~ command + c keys
    Paste ~ command + v keys
    Cut ~ command + x keys

    Cheers

    I guess I'm guilty of not paying attention to which forum this was posted in - but now I'm assuming you're trying to do this on an iPad or iPhone? I know you can do this with most text - but I haven't tried doing anything that included an image - not that I can recall.

    On the iPad, you can copy and paste by double-tapping on a word, which will generally bring up a blue highlighting with little "handles" you use to select the portion you want to copy and the command "copy" or "select all" that you would touch.

    Once copied, open the mail program, start a new note and double-tap in the blank text-entry field. You'll see the option to paste.
