    Hello.
    Very often I've got problem with selecting single word. I hold my finger over word and iPad selects entire paragraph.
    What I'm doing wrong?

    Second thing.
    When I select paragraph I can't resize selection. As soon as I move selection bars they move back to their original position.

    Does this occur with all apps or just certain ones?

    I have the same issue. But only in browsers. Maybe there is an incompatibility between this feature and HTML. Sometimes a tap will give me one word, sometimes a sentence, sometimes a paragraph.

    Hold your finger on the word, once the highlight comes up before removing your finger if its not what you wanted to be highlighted just drag your finger around until the word you want is highlighted.
