For the ipad --- is there a way to select all text on a screen? in a paragraph? I feel like I've done it accidentally a few times, but I can't figure it out ..

For those of us that have the blutooth keyboard, is there a list of the shortcuts on that?? I've been playing around and discovered a few, but it would be great if there was a list somewhere ... Especially for Pages -- I'd love to know if there was a way I can bold,underline,etc ... Thanks!

    If you're using Pages, you can use Cmd-C to copy, Cmd-A to select all, Cmd-V to paste. You can also use the Shift+arrow key to select as much as you want from a paragraph.

    Some of that also works in Mail as well. Using Cmd-Shift-D to send a Mail (what you can do on the desktop version) does not work. And keyboard shortcuts to select a location in Safari don't work either.

    It's very irritating that the Bold, Italics and Underline shortcuts don't work with the bluetooth keyboard for ipad  (they work fine if you use the bluetooth keyboard with a laptop).


    The same problem occurs in Documents To Go AND with Pages. I feel like I wasted money on Pages, only buying it hoping it would not have this very basic issue.


    It's so easy to resolve:


    CMD-B for Bold

    CMD-I for Italics

    CMD-U for Underline


    and CMD-[ for font smaller

    CMD-] for font bigger.


    It would make a world of difference if this could be fixed!
