7 Essential iPad Text-Editing Gestures

Posted November 13, 2019 by Nick LaFave under General

iPad Gestures

As a daily iPad user, I’m amazed at how frequently I discover shortcuts and gestures the I didn’t know about previously. Text-editing gestures can be a real time-saver when working on an iPad. Some of the text-editing gestures below have been around for a while, while others are new to iPadOS.

Undo and Redo with a Swipe

Undo your last action: swipe three fingers to the left.
Redo: swipe three fingers to the right.
Move the Cursor

Moving the cursor just got easier. Now simply tap on the cursor and drag it wherever you want to place it.

Quickly Select Text

Select a word: double-tap
Select a sentence: triple-tap.
Copy and Paste Like a Boss

Copy: Pinch two fingers and your thumb together.
Paste: “Un-pinch” or spread two fingers and your thumb apart.
