    Coming from a z10 I know how to select and copy text using the touchscreen but I would like to be able to select text with the cursor but that doesn't seem possible.

    Am I missing something here?

    Ok. It looks like it's not much better than a z10 for published text. For editing text though, it works well.

    I suggest to use the "easiest" method: maintain a finger on a word in the middle of a sentence you want to select. Don't lift your finger up. Maintain contact with the screen for a while... the selection starts automatically by highligting a word, then sentence then line by line until you select the whole paragraph finally the whole text on the screen.

    If however you want to selct with the circle, tap twice on the keyboard (smoothly, without pressing the keys), the circle shows up. Then move very smoothly on the keyboard, the swiping gesture makes the circle move like you do with a mouse pad of a laptop. Move the circle to the initial position of the intended selection.
    To start selecting, maintain [shift] pressed with one finger and move the circle by swiping on the keyboard with the other. Make sure the shift arrow is lighten up when you select.
