Selecting text using the trackpad

You can use the trackpad to select text that you want to cut, copy, or delete. You can press icon_bb10_keyboard_shift and drag the trackpad to select text.

Alternately, when you press and hold the trackpad on a word, the word is highlighted. The longer you hold the trackpad, the selection extends from the word to a sentence, and from the sentence to a paragraph. When you release the trackpad, the text edit menu appears.

Open or close the text selection menu

  1. When text is selected, press Menu key to open the text selection menu.
  2. To exit text selection mode, do any of the following:
    • Press Back key.
    • Press the trackpad outside the text options menu.
    • Touch the screen.
