Copying Text from a Web Page

You can select text from web pages to copy and paste into your own documents or email messages.

  1. Use Safari to navigate to a web page.
  2. Tap and hold over a piece of text. You don’t need to be exact because you can adjust the selection later. The word Copy appears above the selected area that is highlighted in light blue.
  3. You can tap and drag one of the four blue dots to change the selection area. When your selection gets small enough, it changes to only two blue dots indicating the first and last character of the selection.
  4. Tap outside the selection at any time to cancel the selection.
  5. Tap the Copy button over the selection to copy the text.
  6. You can now go to another application such as Mail or Pages and tap in a text area to choose Paste and paste the text into the area. You can also do this in a form on a page in Safari, such as a web-based email form.
