Samsung Note 9

I can copy short passages but if the section is greater than the screen I can't scroll past the screen edge.

In a confusing help column the website talks about using a copy tool but I think that is desktop.

Thanks

I don't use android, but on iOS there are two views: scrolling and paged. Have you checked scrolling view?

It's my preferred view. When I select and drag the handle down to the bottom of the screen it does not continue to scroll. If I touch the screen to try and scroll, it deselects the choice. I just tried changing from scroll view to page view but it remains the same. 

Android Kindle and Google Books on the device let you grab the handle and the pages will scroll or flip indefinitely. On a  web browser the method is to select the text then carefully scroll the page upwards as it takes a firm touch to deselect the text. Verbum does not seem to have the feature to select more than what is on the screen. 

Are you saying that on Apple you can drag the selection so that the text flows and you get more than one screen selected on your phone?

It depends on how you are highlighting. If you are using "swiping to highlight," then no. You can only highlight what you see on the screen. If you instead select a single word, then drag the selection, you can scroll the screen, adding new material to the selection. It isn't "select and drag," it takes several steps.

Yes, that is what I would expect. And not waht the phone does.
