Selecting copy sections on iPad
posted 3 years ago
Sometimes when I select text, the iPad decides I want to select an entire section of a document, and it can make it difficult to shrink the the selection box down to just select the word(s) I actually want to copy. When I drag a side of the selection box inwards, it often just pops back into place after I release it. Sometimes one side will stay in place, then I can move the others, but other times I can't shrink the selection box at all, and I just have to retry the selection or give up and us my organic cache memory (which becomes less reliable with each passing day) and my fingers (which thankfully are still holding up pretty well). Are there any tricks for selecting words when the iPad prefers sections?
