Select, copy, paste, and undo

While typing on the iPhone or iPad , you can take advantage of the ability to select, cut, copy and paste text, just like you can on any Word Processor on a regular computer. This is especially useful when you need to select the longest trunk of text to either, edit, delete, move or paste in to another location of your document or even into another application. For example, maybe I need to change the word Sunday to Friday. There are two ways to make a selection. If you just want to select the single word, double tap the word. That highlights the word and the Copy Menu appears. Now if the keyboard were currently invisible and I can make it appear by tapping once to insert a cursor, when I double tap Sunday again, notice I now get the Cut option.

You'll only see cut with text you can edit and when you have the keyboard opened in most cases, but I actually don't want to cut or copy right now. I just want to change the word. So, with Sunday selected, I'll type Friday to replace it....
