copy/paste works but differently in different applications:

e based apps - only fields that you can edit, write something, put long
press and select from menu

gtk based apps - only fields where you can edit and sometimes select
text - ctrl-c, ctrl-v

terminal - select and then use the paste icon, 

in general, copy paste support _is_there_ but there are apps where you
cannot copy/paste (for example you cannot copy text from sms you
received and paste it into another one you want to send).
