Selective copying of text

iOS and iPadOS

Sometimes I need to copy fragments of text, for example, not related to each other, that is, there will be unnecessary text between them. how can I copy the text in parts in one operation? ios 14.4

Sadly I don’t believe this is possible on any of the iOS devices I know it definitely can’t be done on the iPhone sorry I can’t be of more help

After copying, go to the desktop and trim the unwanted stuff.

paste it into drafts, then edit with a keyboard. Sadly there is no way to do this, either that or copy what you need, paste, go to the next section and repeat.

By the way, as far as I know, you can only copy using the edit field. you cannot copy from web pages, at least I have not found a way to do this.
