Today we’re focusing on saving time when editing!
Editing docs on the iPad seems straightforward, however, there are some nuances that can make it frustrating especially when switching between apps. Understanding the distinctions can help reduce frustration and save time.
Not all apps support the same text editing features. For example, the Notes app behaves differently than Mail and QuickOffice®. When a specific command doesn’t work in a given app, know that you are not doing something wrong! It just means that the app does not support that particular functionality.
Selecting & Editing Text
- Tap any word, then grab the blue handle and drag to select a specific range.
- Depending on which version of iOS you have, you can select a word by tapping on it and drag from anywhere with the selected word. This is much easier than trying to grab the blue handle.
