Is there a way to copy a page from a website using the IPad? I can't figure it out. I'm trying to go to my website and want to copy one of the pages there to send to someone, but when I put my finger on the page I don't get the usual "copy, paste, select all, select," I get nothing. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks for the help once again!

    I don't think it's possible to do it in that way although I could be mistaken as I've not tried it myself. The iPad is pretty limited when it comes to that sort of functionality. There are apps in the App store that allow you to save web pages. One of the more popular ones is Instapaper. Whether they allow you to send them via email I am not sure. Is it not possible for you to send a link to that web page and let the recipient open it up ?

    Place you finger on the image in the web page and a popup window will appear. You can either save the image or copy it.

    When saving the image is saved in the iPad photo app, you can email the image from the app.

    If you choose to copy the image, copy---> Open email app---> place your finger on the body of the email---> Paste...send email.

    You should be able to take a screenshot of the page and then e mail it.

    I just tried iSaveWebLite on an Apple website page. It only copied the the one page. When I viewed that page in the iSaveWebLite app it viewed fine and when I touched a link on that page it said it could not display that page since it was not saved.

    For a screen shot just click the home and sleep button, don't hold them down. If you hold them down the iPad will reboot.

    The images maybe CSS background image. If so you can't copy them. Can you post the URL?
