Hi all , my S pen pro  works seamlessly between S21 Ultra and Tab S7 + but so far I can't work out how to use copy and paste using S pen , it's only working using the usual clipboard method ?
Any ideas or are we waiting on software update ?

@Easty: If you tap and hold on some text, drag the S Pen to adjust the highlighted area, then lift up the pen, does a menu appear at the top of the screen with Cut, Copy, Paste and Clipboard options?

So on multi screen you can drag and drop between apps ( pictures and text ) , is that what they're talking about for Bluetooth copy and paste ?

@Easty: There is a drag and drop option in the app multi window mode, but it should also be possible to copy an item, and paste it to another device, with the S Pen Pro utilising Bluetooth to complete the process. Have you tried copying an item on your S21 Ultra, then heading to your Tab S7 and selecting 'Paste'?

Yes but it just brings up copy clipboard? Might be different after next update

Yes but it copies straight to clipboard ? Doesn't seem to be anyway around it ? Will the software update fix this ? Which devices are you doing this on ?
Also , why doesn't the s pen connect to 2 devices at once? It's a pain keep waiting for the slow connection process and annoying animation .
