    Does anyone else find this annoying? When trying to paste something in the SMS box and you want a space before it, it won't leave the space. For example when I quote someone from another text I copy the bubble, and in the new text I want to write "he said to me: (space)blah blah blah" but every time I press space before I paste the blah blah blah it goes back so it's like "he said to me:blah blah". So I have to go back and put the space lol.

    Ok yea I know it's not that big of a deal bit it gets on nerves lol.

    Ok I'm done lol.

    I would tap in the text box for the past option to come up insted of holding until the option came up. If you tap it will take the space away and if you hold it leaves the space.

    I hate to thread jack but it seemed solved.

    Anyone figure out how to copy more than one message in an SMS convo? I remember back in like beta 3 you could. Now it only allows you to copy one at a time?

    This thread reminded me of that annoyance but didn't seem worthy of a whole new thread...

    I guess maybe if you forward them to yourself or something and then copy it once it's in the text box. That's the only way I can think of.

    What I mean is like this:

    Currently you can hold down on a SMS bubble and it turns blue, option to copy. Previously in the betas you could select multiple bubbles, yours and the one you are having a conversation with. You could copy and paste a whole SMS convo.
