Twice now, while typing up a comment on a question, my comment was too long, so I selected a portion of the text, tapped cut, posted the comment, then went into my notes app to save the cut text to see if I could make it more succinct, but all that’s pasted is either a space or some sort of attachment. There seems to be no way to recover the cut text that I can determine. The first time, I assumed it was a fluke or that I did something wrong, but it just happened again, so I think there’s some sort of bug in the app.
Is there a way to cut text from a comment and paste it elsewhere, like in another app? Is it just me having this issue?
Edit: I just tested it in the comments below. I typed the word “Testing”, selected it, cut it, switched to my notes app and attempted to paste. It inserted a 7 byte attachment with a name that was a long hash string and it had a Dropbox icon. There’s no way to open it to access the text.
