I'm new to the Edge, so for all I know what I'm about to tell you is common knowledge. Let me know if it is!

Here is how to copy something from an Eink book to the tablet side of your Edge:

1. Highlight some text in an eink book. Of course you have to use the stylus to do that.

2. Click on the magnifying glass above with the stylus. This causes the material to appear on the tablet side.

3. Hold down your finger or something on the text on the tablet side; when a menu opens up, choose Copy all.

4. Go to the notepad, mind mapping program or whatever on your tablet. Hold down your finger until the menu pops up and choose Paste.


Is that common knowledge?

Not common knowledge to me! Thanks, geneven! :)

I have been able to copy and paste to the tablet, but your method is new to me, and sounds easy! (And I do like easy!! :))

Ah! Two-stepping through Search. Very clever! I would wonder how much you can move that way though.

I don't know how to mark text across page barriers so one complete page is as far as I could go.

You can also use the text selection tool on the e-ink side, select some text, then click edit/copy from the e-ink side, then go to the tablet side and paste the text into any app that has a Paste option on the long-click menu.
