Use the mouse

iPads have a built-in mouse. There are two ways to access it:

  • Method one: Tap and hold anywhere on the keyboard with two fingers; the keyboard will grey out and become a giant touchpad you can use to place your cursor at the relevant point in the text.
  • Method two: Tap and hold one finger on the Space bar for the same effect.

You can also select text.

For example, use method two to position your cursor and then use a second finger to tap the screen. The text selection tool will appear under the cursor, and you can then move the cursor to select characters, words, sentences, or paragraphs.

Once you select text, you can replace it or tap the selected area once to reveal the contextual menu where you can access other functions, such as applying Bold or Italics to your copy.

In the Spotlight

Remember the four-finger inward pinch gesture to return to the Home screen from within any app?
