    In the messaging app, when I hit the top left and open the menu, under edit...

    Theres a symbol for all the commands. It sort've looks like a circle inside a circle. Can anyone tell me how to use that without going into menu? Thanks.


    i'd like to copy + paste a little faster. Not a big deal. Just Curious.

    Hold one finger on the Gesture area left or right of center (that's what that symbol means) then press the corresponding letter on the keyboard.
    So, Copy would be Gesture + C
    Paste - Gesture + V

    Press the center button (LED or button) at the same time that you press the letter.

    its the sign for the gesture area. Just touch the left side of the gesture area and then C, for example to Copy, just as you would touch the Ctrl key and then C on a PC.

    Close, but pressing center will not work properly. It will paste but then minimize your app since you pressed center. Use the Gesture area to the right or left of center.

    copy and paste works the same way from anywhere within the phone.

    Just make sure the center light turns on when you hold over the gesture area. Otherwise it won't work.

    Here is one of my ( many, because Im OLD, and have CRS) notes, I always keep in the notes app:

    Text tips

    orange key + left or right swipe anywhere on the screen = move cursor in text

    shift key + left or right swipe anywhere on the screen = highlight

    I hold the gesture area so that the middle light is illuminated and then hit
    X to cut
    C to copy
    V to paste

    If you Arrow + Tap on the page, it should highlight a paragraph at a time. Continue Arrow + Tap until all the paragraphs you want are highlighted. Then Gesture + C to copy.
