    Hi Matthew,

    Have you tried copying from the "Export" option?

    Hi Frank,

    Yes, that works.  But It doesn't quite scratch the itch because I want to be able to make updates after the fact without needing to re-share the content--which is why copying a link would be preferable.

    Here's the button that doesn't do what you would expect.  The little "copy" button lights up when I touch it, but if I later try to paste I find that my clipboard contains whatever it previously held--not the workflowy link that I expect.

    Aaah, ok... I thought you were talking about the "Share content" option, which also has a Copy icon.

    Would you delete your app and reinstall... and test?

    Does it?  Export takes me to a page that allows me to highlight the text--whence I can then copy using the normal text highlight dialog.  But I don't see a workflowy-provided copy button

    Anyhow, I've reinstalled the app (got version 3.5.75) and I'm still getting the same behavior.

    The "Copy Internal Link" functionality works just fine, it's just the publicly sharable secret link that's the issue.

    I'm trying to think of another app that provides a text-to-clipoard dialog like workflowy does--so I can test it there too.  But I'm drawing a blank.  Spotify's "copy link to song" functionality is similar, and it works, but it appears to be implemented just like your internal link does--so it's not a good test.

    (I'm a developer, but not an Android developer, so I don't know what you'd call the "share to clipboard" workflow, but I'll know it if I see it again.  Then I'll make sure it works in general and update back here)
