Now deleting text is about as simple as you can imagine. You select the text, say that word there and hit the Delete key in your keyboard. It goes away. I'm going to Command+Z to undo that. There are other tricks to deleting texts. If you do a lot of typing, you don't want to take your hands off the keyboard. So double-clicking to select a word, slows you down and I'll zoom-in some more. Let's say you are in the text box right here and you need to start deleting some words. Well, the Delete key only removes the character just to the left of your insertion point.
What if you want to delete the character to the right of your insertion point? Just hold down the Shift key. That will delete the character to the right of your insertion point. What if you want to remove the whole word? Just add the Command key to it or the Ctrl key on Windows. So I'm holding down Command+Shift+ Delete and it just deleted the whole word to the right of my cursor. It's just Command+Delete or Ctrl+Delete on Windows, boom! And that word is gone. So don't feel like you have to memorize all these key commands but if you are doing a lot of text editing, there is just a few of them and they really, really, help.
