When typing in a textarea on Chrome for Android (such as when asking this question), I can't figure out how to get the Paste menu to show. If I long press, Chrome wants to highlight. Of I double trap, the blue cursor just shows.
Occasionally, the Paste menu does show after repeated taps and holds, but I have found no reproducible actions that get it to show.
This might be a system-wide problem, but Chrome seems to be where I notice it. I'll reply back if I find the issue in other applications.
I'm on Chrome v39 on Android 4.4.4 (Moto Turbo).
