No idea, I dont get why theres no ctrl-copy, ctrl-cut and ctrl-paste, no alt-f4, no ctrl-alt-delete, no ctrl-z and ctrl-y, no ctrl-a, ctrl-s, ctrl-o, no mouse-hover-menu-system for IE10, etcetera.
I guess its mostly because... you just do things slightly more cumbersome since its touchbased instead of full QWERTY. You mark the first/last word, and drag the marker to the end/start of the text you desire to copy, and thats that.
Mark->select. Its no harder than mark->longpress->copy compared to mark->ctrl-c, but thats the trade-off when you want a pure touch device. It seems.

It is harder when doing it on some web sites or forums or even the wpcentral app for the forums. Sometimes when editing,ot quoting you can't scroll down. A select all just makes more sense . If you wanted to copy the test on a site are you gonna scroll the whole page ? Wouldn't selecting all just be more efficient ?
