Actually, you can drag to the sides or any edge of the Newton's screen except the bottom. To copy, double tap then drag. If you do this a lot, you'd like to get Byte Size's many software that make this painless, like ▀▀Editor and Hilite 2000. < >

Oh, and you'll probably want to get SBM's freeware "Options" which will give you multiple clipboards amongst other goodies. < >
