    Just discovered this little gem that helps with selecting a large chunk of text:
    • Long hold on any part of a word and the word is selected
    • Keep holding on the same spot and the containing sentence is selected
    • Keep holding on the same spot and subsequent lines of text get selected at roughly 2 per second until you let go


    I am using 10.3.1.1949 leak and have never tried this before so not sure if this is a new feature or not.

    All the shortcuts, tips and tricks are in the Help app from BlackBerry. You just have to type "help" followed by your query in the Universal search or start the app...

    For selecting text for example :
    Text selection tip-img_20150108_140253_edit.png
    Text selection tip-img_20150108_140307_edit.png
    Text selection tip-img_20150108_140313_edit.png

    Just saying...

    Well, you're not forced to read it throughly. You can just ask "him" a question, and voila !
