There's also a couple of alternatives, if you are using the touch-pad... This is one of them...

Looking at a page of text, put your pointer (marker) against the first word you need to highlight for copying and single click on the touchpad... Using two fingertips, scroll down to the end of the text that needs to be copied, put your pointer against the end of the last word, hold down the shift key and tap the touchpad with a single finger... That entire section will become highlighted...

At that, press control and click 'X'... That will cut the text...
Put your marker, where the text needs to be inserted, hold down the control key and tap 'V'... That will complete the insertion of the text....

Hope that is useful information for you and anyone else reading... Please give feedback so that others may benefit from what's been suggested

Therein lies the 64,000 dollar question: 'What might that be'???
