    Most of this info is available in various places and guides, but here's a nice little video about the full capabilities of the iPad's keyboard...

    Some of these I really cool ! I've been trying to use them for a long time and only figured out now the reason why I couldn't use some of the shortcuts .... It's because I use a French keyboard :eek: The shortcuts are not the same !!!!

    Excellent video - full of very helpful insights and tips — thanks!

    Does anyone also know if there's any way to creat user-defined keyboard shortcuts? I write in the IT field and that could save me a lot of time

    I was going to say that one more viewer thinks this is an awesome video, but I can't. I sent the link to my wife, and she thought it was awesome too, so I'll have to say that TWO iPad2 users thought this was awesome. Thank you! :D

    It only appears when your likely to need it, ie when entering a web address in safari. Try it now if you want.

    This answered several questions I've had, but there are still a few things I can't seem to figure out. One is the back delete feature. How do you delete a character to the right of the cursor? Another is a lack of cursor movement keys. There have been cases where I simply couldn't figure out how to get the cursor to a spot I needed it to get to and where a simple set of arrows would have been very handy. Perhaps the only way to do this is to connect to a hardware keyboard.
