Brett’s iTip: A little bit of a self-serving tip with my iPractice on an iPad courses now available at www.ipracticeonanipad.com, but here are some tips on selecting text in Microsoft Word: 

  • The “old” way: tap and hold on a word until you see the Edit menu and then tap “Select.” That will select the word and you can use the blue dots to expand the text selection. 
  • Double-Tap to select a word. And then you can use the blue dots to expand the selection.
  • Triple-Tap to select a sentence or a paragraph. More times than not, I see this selecting the entire paragraph, but in some cases a triple-tap just selects the sentence. But you can always use the blue dots to expand the selection or make it smaller. 
  • Use your External Keyboard: Hold down Shift + Left/Right Arrow Keys and this will select text one character at a time. Hold down Shift + Option + Left/Right Arrow Keys and this will select text one word at a time. (You can also use the Up/Down Arrow Keys)


Jeff’s iTip: Easily convert a Microsoft Word document to PDF on your iPad or iPhone. If you receive a Microsoft Word document on your iPhone or iPad and you need to convert it to PDF, just open the file in the Microsoft Word app and tap the “Share” button in the upper right corner (a small box with an arrow coming out). You’ll then see an option to share the Word document as a PDF. You can either email that PDF file to someone or open the PDF file in other apps like PDF Expert or GoodNotes.
