Chapter 3. TEXT > Selecting Text

Selecting Text

Although the simplest way to select text is to highlight the text, there are more sophisticated methods that allow you to select specific words, lines, or paragraphs. Although these may seem confusing at first, if you use the techniques often, they should become second nature.

To select text using the mouse:

  • Drag across the text. The highlight indicates which text is being selected.

    or

    Double-click within a word to select it and the space following it.

    or

    Triple-click within a paragraph to select it.
