    I'm wanting to copy and paste a section of an email, however I cannot get a cursor to come up anywhere. Can anyone tell me how to get the cursor to appear?

    Hit BB key and then choose Select from the menu. You should see a cursor on the screen to move to desired text to copy.

    You can also simultaneously touch 2 fingers on the screen to highlight what's between. It's tricky to get the correct section highlighted, but don't worry: you can drag either end of the highlighted portion to the desired size.

    If I choose select and the cursor move after a picture , the cursor never comback to deselect text. I must click on escape and SELECT again.

    Did you try that double-touch method I mentioned above to see if it works in FB?

    yessir I did, no luck with it there, and you were right, it is a little difficult. I prefer the bb and select better

    This technique doesn't work for me as I am unable get the cursor in the body of an open received email.

    But I can copy text within the body of an email using the "touch 2 fingers" method.

    I think SHIFT+Trackpad together will paste it too.

    Test: d to make
    Yep copied random section to Copy. SHIFT+Trackpad pastes it after.
