Copy and Paste text in "Show as table" not working

I'm working with a matrix of data in PowerBI Mobile and i need to copy some text from the matrix. Reading some previous posts i've learned that i can use the visual ellipsis to access "Show as table" feature and then be able to select the text that i want. The problem is that i am able to select text from the matrix but the copy functions are not shown on my phone.
I tested in different mobile devices and i couldn't copy.

Hey @RichardsonMM ,


You should be able to use the native copy guesture in your device.

In IPhone fo example - Long press on a table cell, then choose "select all", then choose "copy". See the image below:



Thanks, Maya

Thank you for your answer @mshenhav 

Interesting, i've tested again and it doesn't show these options for me. I really don't know if it's because some report setting that i'm not looked into or some Android problem.

Is there someone who has the same problem? I have tested in multiple devices with the same report and does not work.
