Default [Q] Can't paste number into dialler app?

Copied a phone number to clipboard from chrome browser, couldn't paste it into the number entry in phone dialler app.

Anyone else get this? It's going to be a problem for me I think

Strange! tap and hold the field which you enter phone number and then you'll see a "paste" button to paste. Isn't it like that?

No, it doesn't. It has in every other android phone I've used, including other xperias.

Why don't you try factory reset? If it still does not solve, flash stock firmware. That's how I usually solve errors. hee he

Same here, pasting from Chrome doesn't work. If I paste the number into a draft text message, re-copy it, I can then paste into dialer. Not really a solution, but a work around at least.

so:
Chrome -> dialer = no paste
Chrome -> text ->dialer = fine.

weird!

Just tried the same with Firefox: worked
Chrome on the same webpage: couldn't paste the number to dialer. But double tapping the phone number in Chrome offered me to dial directly...

Might be a problem with Chrome....

Just before someone starts asking: stock firmware, unrooted

Anyone have select text problems?
Magnifying glass instead select option.
For example from Textra and Total Commander text editor.
