Copy and paste

I have a moto x 2nd gen. How do I copy and paste? When I hold down on some text I get two little tear drops that I can move. I know how to select the text. I hold down on the text I can feel the motot x vibrate. Nothing comes up to select copy. When I try to paste the text in a field any field I feel the moto x vibrate again but does not paste anything. Please someone how do I copy and paste with my moto x 2nd gen? thank you.

there should be a series of icons that pop up at the top of the screen

When you see the select bubbles…you should also see the word “copy” on top.

Similarly when you press and hold in an empty text box…or a location where you want to insert copied text…you should

get a pop-up with the word “Paste”…tapping on Paste will insert the copied text at the position

of the cursor.

If you are not seeing the pop-ups then there might be something else going on with your phone. I would recommend

just try a simple restart first…followed by Clearing Cache…to see if that clears it up.
