2) Text Selection

In order to display the selection options you should “tap” at the insertion point or a word should be “tapped” two times to select the text. To select less or more text, drag the grab points. For documents which are read-only just “touch and hold” for selecting a word.


The selected text can be copied, pasted or it can be cut. To get underlined text, “tap” U. To get bold text, “tap” B and to get italic text, “tap” I. Underlined, bold and italic texts are possible in some apps, with such apps iPhone can suggest an alternative and you can also get a word definition. “Tap” the symbol shown in the figure 10 to see all the available options.

How to undo the last edit?

How to quote some text while replying?

How to change a recipient from Cc to Bcc while sending a message?

How to get a sneak preview?

How to know you are the original recipient of the message or not?

Select “Settings”--> “Mail”, “Contacts”, “Calendars”--> “Show To/Cc Label.” The original message was not sent to you if the label reads “Cc” and not “To.” The other way to know if you were copied or not is to check the “To/Cc” mailbox because it has all the mails sent to you. “Tap” Mailboxes or swipe to the right and then “tap” Edit in order to hide or show it.
