Can't copy text from OO? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Maybe I'm missing something...

It seems that one cannot copy text out of OO to other apps. Is this true? Please tell me I'm just seeing (or not seeing!) things. I've restarted my iPad and it still doesn't seem to work.


Here's a workaround:
  1. Export the outline as an email and simple HTML. But don't actually send the email.
  2. Copy the text you need from the body of the email.
  3. Switch apps and paste.

Composing a Text export email doesn't work in this case as Omni imposes formatting on the text that doesn't translate to anything else nicely.
