How to cut and paste on Kindle Fire

In web browser app you are not able to cut content, in most of situations, you can only cut texts in an office app. So I also take WPS Office app as an example.

Select the text you want to cut

Press and hold on the text you want to cut, then a toolbar will pop up, but there is no cut option.

Because you need to select the words you want to cut at first, so we choose “Select”.
