How to paste text in Plasma Mobile?
#1
That's probably a pretty dumb question, but how do I paste text on Pinephone KDE (Manjaro/Plasma Mobile)?

Phosh for example offers within the keyboard's language selection the possibility to choose the terminal keyboard layout which offers the buttons Ctrl, Tab, etc.
But for Plasma Mobile I cannot find a solution. Tap and hold also has no effect.

So how do I paste text?

Thanks!!!

Hmm, what do you mean "paste"? Just checked and was able to copy a webpage text from Angelfish and paste it to Terminal or Spacebar or Nota or Phonebook Name field...
However - this does not seem to work for the Search field...

How do you paste it? Tap and hold the screen? Where do you get the option "paste"?

"Long touch" the text input field and a little pop-up menu appears where depending on the clipboard are small option icons: cut, copy and paste Wink
Running Manjaro PlaMo beta 8 + updates here.

I got the latest updates, too but that little pop-up menu you mention, doesn't appear for me...
At least I know now, how it should work and that I didn't do anything wrong since this is the intuitive way to paste text...

I'd recommend to try beta 8. Keep in mind that daily builds are not equal to beta+updates. Beta has its own update channel.
