Although the keyboard and autocorrection are very impressive on the BlackBerry Z10, there are times when my thumb spasms cannot be salvaged. Before I knew about this simple, yet effective trick, editing text was a little bit frustrating. If I dragged the lens too slow, the overflow menu would appear with the copy, cut and paste options available. I had to drag it quickly even if I wanted it a space or 2 over. Here is where the trick comes in. Tap once to place the cursor where you want to start editing. If the cursor didn’t make it to where you wanted, tap again and the lens (small circle as seen above) will appear.
- To move the cursor one space to the left, tap the left side of the lens
- To move the cursor one space to the right, tap the right side of the lens
- To move the cursor one line up, tap the top of the lens
- To move the cursor one line down, tap the bottom of the lens
Its as simple as that! Huge thank you to Neil Wick who pointed out this trick to me on our article on how to type fast on the Z10 keyboard.
