Highlighting Text/Copy/Paste

[ Edited ]

2012-09-18-002030.jpgI'm fairly certain nobody has covered this.

It turns out that we are able to highlight text using the PS Vita's L or R button and scrolling the page.

The picture attached should better explain. Its my screenshot of highlighted text.

I've been fiddling with several other buttons but none seem to do anything. Still working this out right now.

If anyone finds anymore info, post it here! It would be awesome to know if the Vita has more options like copy/paste. 

Oh and also, L and R scroll back and forth through text. You know, sort of like pressing on the arrow keys on a pc. And square is considered "backspace".

But from what i see, there's no "space" button. LOL, funny how Sony didn't let any of us in on these hidden features.

I was reading the other topics about copy/paste, but no one went into detail about it, there are still many things we don't know about the Vita such as being able to scroll quickly on internet pages.

So I created this topic to have others share their discoveries with us. Smiley Happy

faster then flicking. you have to slide your finger fast up or down and then stop at the top or bottom of the page and keep your finger on the screen. it will scroll hella fast.
