I wanna book ban my friend with The Bee Movie script but I can't copy or paste things on my controller. I use a controller because I am used to it and I'm pretty bad with keyboard and mouse controls. I personally do not have a keyboard and mouse for my Xbox and I am not willing to buy one just to copy and paste. Does anyone know how to copy and paste without buying a keyboard and mouse?

  • I know I've used the Xbox App on my Android phone to perform copy and paste operations with my Xbox. But I don't know if that'll work within a game.

  • How do you paste it back in Minecraft or wherever you need it?
