Identified as a high importance item in the mobile editing report:
Copying and pasting will likely be an important part of the user workflow if work is done on sentence- or paragraph-level editing. There are some technological limitations on copying and pasting in mobile browsers, for reasons such as improving security by ensuring that websites don't interfere with the user's clipboard and do evil things. This could put us in a situation where we have to rely entirely on the browser's copy and paste mechanism, which may be problematic.
This task is to perform some investigation into ways that we might improve the copy-paste workflow on mobile, see if there are technological or design solutions to the issues faced by users, and to do general research in the area.
