    How do I hi-lite text to copy/paste? I did a couple times on accident right out of the box......but now I cannot for the life of my figure it out.... and I can't ever seem to get the search function to work like I want either.....

    Sorry to waste your time with something so simplistic......

    I appreciate the help you have given so far, and in the future.... thanks a lot

    It's not a waste of time! It's a perfectly valid question!

    Hold down the shift key (far right or left of the space bar) and roll the track ball over the text you want to select.

    Hope it helps! Welcome to CrackBerry!

    Once the text is selected be sure to Menu + Copy after you've selected it and Menu + Paste to paste it where you want. (Maybe there's a shortcut for this? I don't know...)

    Welcome to CB. Elvin is correct. That is the way to do it.

    Not a stupid question at all. We were all newbies at one time. Don't worry about how you'll look if you need help. Chicklet is correct. This should work for you.

    I just had noticed a couple posts where some members seemed as if they found themselves to be too good to answer what they thought were stupid questions... thats the reason I was hesitant to post

    Not only that but once you ask it you realize how many were wondering the same thing.

    You can cut/copy/paste but clicking the trackbutton.. it's a bit quicker than hitting the menu button There's a keyboard shortcut as well but I completely forget what it is...

    There is always a loudmouth dumba** in every group. Don't let it stop you from asking a question. There are a lot more people here that are willing to help you then the ones who just like to stir the sh!t.

    Pardon my language... I was just sayin'.
