Select entire paragraphs while editing text on the iPhone

Even easier: A single-tap with two fingers on a paragraph selects it.

Select entire paragraphs while editing text on the iPhone

Are you on a jail-broken phone also?

I'm not, but when I tap with two fingers, I text between the two fingers is selected!


In Documents To Go, a two-finger single-tap results in the doc being un-zoomed.

Select entire paragraphs while editing text on the iPhone

Interesting stuff! When I try this is Notes, the behaviour is like this:

a) When the keyboard is up and I'm so to speak in "edit mode" of a note:
- Tapping with two fingers selects the entire paragraph
- Tapping and HOLDING with two fingers selects the text between the fingers

b) When I've just opened a note (keyboard is not up):
- Both tapping with two fingers and tapping and holding behaves the same way - the text between the fingers

c) When I've opened a note, brought up the keyboard and then hid it again by tapping Done:
- Behaviour is the same as in a) above, i.e. it is still possible to select a paragraph with a quick two-finger tap.

Odd enough!
