new to the forum
Hello, I am new to this forum, and I joined in the hope of finding some answers / tips, tricks to resolve some of the mysteries I still find in using my ipad. As a and old timer in windows and a relative novice to the Apple applications world I find some issues frustrating; such as :
how does one undo erasing text in the mail app say while forwarding? what are the text editing control commands? are there ways of showing these commands on screen while typing...?
anyway I am happy I joind the forum and hope Someone can help out.
Hi there and welcome.
To erase text, touch and hold somewhere on the text that you want to delete, the drag the blue dots to the start and finish of the text you want to delete then touch the x button at the top right of the keyboard.
