    How can I edit a misspelled word without deleting everything to to point where it is misspelled?

    Also there does not seem to be directional arrows to "easily" move the cursor, and I guess my fingers are to big to "touch and move" accurately...

    Thanks from a noob!

    If you press and hold the screen near the point you want to edit a pop-up magnifying glass will appear that allows you to position the cursor easily - as well as select a word, drag the vertical select bars to include more test, cut, copy or paste.
