Copying/Pasting from Gmail appsWith A Bluetooth Keyboard

iOS and iPadOS

Hi. Hoping someone can help. I have need to copy information from gmail messages into website forms and i'm really struggling to do it. I am using a Logitech Keys-To-Go keyboard and an iPhone SE with IOS 9.3.3. I thought initially that it was just a gmail app problem but I've tried forwarding emails to another email address in iCloud to see if that resolves the problem. It does not. You can't seem to read the information the same as in a text message or note and as a result it's really difficult to copy and paste. If anyone has any tips I would be eternally grateful.

Could you do this ok before the update to ios 9.3.3?
Are you saying the three finger quadruple tap does not copy from email now?

Enable the text selection rotor and use that if you want to select using the keyboard. Shift-arrows only works in editable text fields. Alternatively, you could use the pinch gesture. Strangely, there are Braille key equivalents for the pinch gesture but none from the keyboard.

Hi. This is my first time of using a keyboard with my iPhone. So, I'm not sure whether I could orI couldn't. Incidentally, what do people mean when they are talking about enabling the text selection in the rotor.
