Currently, Anki does not support selecting any text for touch input to cut, copy and paste at all. It would be great if long pressing text to select text and dragging the selection to select more than 1 word to cut, copy and paste is supported for Windows 10 just like Ankimobile.

    Hopefully the toolkit Anki uses will support this in the future.
