    No, there are not. You have to use your finger(s) to press on the screen. Then, you will get a pop-up to select "copy" or "paste." There is a backspace key, which is that black arrow with a white "X" - the key next to the letter "P" on the main keyboard.

    There is also an "undo" button that you can access by pressing the ".?123" key.

    Hope this helps.

    Am I missing something on the keyboard...??

    The black "back space" key deletes each letter as it goes "back"...unlike the "normal" backspace which just jumps the letters

    A normal backspace deletes as it goes. In a full keyboard, the back arrow is what skips letters. The iPad does not have arrow buttons.
