    Know how to select and copy a word or a whole document but is there a way of selecting a paragraph?

    Select a word as per normal then drag the blue dots on the selection box to the limits of the paragraph. Hope that helps.

    I tried that and can't seem to get it to work (think my fingers may be too big!). However I found another way which is to tap 33 times on the beginning of the paragraph and that worked perfectly.

    Thanks for your help
