    Using TMPro input fields with multi line editing.

    I'm pretty shocked to discover (on Android at least) that you can't copy/paste into these, select words by holding and dragging or even move the carrot around (by holding down to get fine control). If you show mobile input, you gain this, but multi line inputs cover the app itself. I'd like to do it in the app interface.

    How do I enable this sort of functionality? Don't want anything extra beyond basic, native text interaction that you get in other applications by default.

    Thanks!

    Still not found a solution for this.
