Bluetooth keyboard shortcuts: copy, cut, paste [webOS 3.0.5]

This tip is only for devices webOS 3.0.5 or higher

Using a Bluetooth keyboard with your TouchPad certainly makes typing and navigating text must easier, even allowing you to move the cursor or highlight / select text. Despite the ability to highlight text, you still had to rely on the on-screen controls to copy or paste the data. However, with the latest webOS 3.0.5 update for the TouchPad, the Bluetooth keyboard now has the ability to copy, cut or paste text using the standard Control key combinations.

After you highlight text, you can now use:

  • Control + C for copy
  • Control + X for cut
  • Control + V for paste

In addition, you can also use Control + A to "select all" to highlight all the text on the screen. Now, someone needs to figure out a way to patch the virtual keyboard to allow those commands!
