    Hey guys,

    Sometimes I use the drag and drop function for text but I experienced two behaviors...

    1. When I select a sentence and want to put it somewhere else in the text, it will just take the sentence and put in the desired position.
    2. Sometimes it won’t just take the sentence and put it there, but it will also leave the sentence on the old position (iOS then copied the sentence instead of just moved it).

    I noticed that there sometimes is a green plus sign which means that the text will be copied instead of just moved.
    But how can I influence the behavior?

    Thank you!

    Depends on what app you are dragging from. Behavior is up to the source app.

    Yeah, sometimes it copies and sometimes it just drags and drops it.

    It should copy if your target is a different app, otherwise it should move it (at least that’s the notes behavior I see)
