I am using an iPad Air with the latest iOS, 8.1. When I highlight text quite often I do not get options for what to do after I have highlighted the text. There was a similar thread but it was for iOS 8.0 and a solution offered was to update to 8.1. Since I have updated to 8.1, I have started a new thread. The issue still exists. Here are a few more specifics: This usually happens in Safari, but I believe I have also used other apps. Once the text is highlighted, there is no bar with the options to copy, delete, paste, define, etc. There is just the highlighted items in the blue. It is a little difficult to de-highlight to try again. Tapping inside the highlighted area or outside (being careful not to touch a link) does not always de-highlight or de-select the items. I have to do it a number of times sometimes. Sometimes I just exit out of Safari or the app. This is not always convenient, and should not be necessary. Yes, I have done what is always stated. I have force closed all apps, I have rebooted the iPad Air after turning it off and leaving it off for a while. I have done everything. I am not using any third party keypad. I have not downloaded any third party keypads. I am using the standard keyboard that came on my iPad. Has there been any word on an iOS 8.2 release? Does anyone know? I am not using the iPad as much now because I am finding too many bugs. It is too frustrating. I also tried editing this post when I had it in the wrong thread and could not. I wanted to copy what I had typed when I inserted it into the wrong thread and paste it into a new thread. I could not even highlight the text, I saw the words "Select" and I think "Select All" briefly when touching the area where I wanted to copy, They were just there for a flash and disappeared. I could not highlight that text. I just deleted the post instead and started fresh here. It is doing the same thing right now when I try to highlight text in this edit window. No highlighting is possible. Two options show up for a second, but no highlighting is possible to select text and those two options are only visible for a fleeting second anyways. I think they are "Select" and "Select All" but you cannot choose because they are just flashed very quickly. The editing feature is not not there or working properly all the time. I don't know if this issue is with other pads, I am using the iPad Air. Please excuse any typos because I am having a hard time editing them out. Thank you.
