    Gosh I hope i found this first. I never get the goods before anyone else.

    I got a Ca Z10, got ATT sim card (Im VZ) and been having fun the last 2 weeks. One thing i found today is a copy and paste shortcut. It is important to me as i use it a BUNCH.
    On the old BB you did a "2 finger" long press and then moved to fit what you wanted to copy.

    On the PB and Z10 you just hold down anywere and then move to pick what you want to copy ( move the front and then the end).

    Here we go. what i found today is that if you LONG PRESS where you want to start and keep holding it down, it keeps adding txt as long as you hold down. You could do a whole page if you held down long enough and not have to move the "tail end". This may seem silly to some, but to one who Copy and pastes a bunch with fat thumps....this is great.

    Hope I'm first....and i love finding the little hidden secrets that make all of our lives more efficient. LONG LIVE BB!!!

    This is great. But selecting text on BB10 needs some work.

    Doesn't seem to work for me. In docs to go I open a text file. Then I put my finger on part of the text. The blue copy tool appears. I keep my finger in place. Nothing else happens.

    Am I doing it wrong?

    EDIT: It doesn't work with Docs To Go. Just tried it in my browser and it works fine. The shortcut highlights a paragraph at a time so not really a solution to "Big thumb syndrome!"
    Still cool though.

    I noticed this one too when trying to figure out that damn cursor loupe. You get the "Finders Kudos" for posting your findings first, though.
    Good one!

    "I am as happy as a little girl"....I found something first on CB. Im staying up all night trying all kinds of SHIZZ to see if i can find something else. Again, I love all the hidden shortcuts that truly makes BB, well, BlackBerry.
