    Menu+e cursor?

    Hi, I am trying to select and copy text from a website. If I hit menu+e on the physical keyboard I see a cursor on the screen.How do I move/use this cursor? Using my pudgy finger to select and copy text is like using an axe to do surgery. Thanks for any help on this. That cursor looks promising.

    you can move the cursor with the d-pad controller.

    Hi, thanks for replying. When I attempt to move the cursor with the d-pad, the cursor disappears and the next hyperlink highlights on the page, as if I never hit menu+e in the first place. So I ask, what is the exact procedure for using menu+e to select and copy text from a website?

    after trying it myself.... using my finger was the only way to select text... and 'axe for surgery' is an accurate description. I don't know what the purpose of the cursor is that pops up when you try to select text. It looks promising as you said but seems to serve no real function.

    Try holding the Shift key down while you move the cursor with the D-Pad. It's worked for me on some occasions.

    Correct...Axe for surgery is a very good description. Copying text is the one thing that makes me miss my g1 trackball.
