How to highlight text in GL 3.0

Postby lukismaximus » Sat Jun 29, 2013 7:03 am

I am having trouble just figuring out how to highlight text. When I double tap a passage I can't select it at all. I am not sure if it is because I am using an iPhone or what? Then when I tried to find some kind of help option so I could read about how to select text with gl3.0 I couldn't find that either, at least I found this forum .

When I had an iTouch, I would tap once and a word would highlight. Then I would expand the highlighted area using the markers at each end of the word.

Yes, you press and hold on a word to start a selection block.

You can also press and hold just to the right of the last word in a verse to quickly select the entire verse. Someone else mentioned that in a different thread and it worked for me.

I've had mixed results holding after the last word in a verse. Today I discovered that if I get one word highlighted toward the end of the verse and then simply extend that selection towards the last word in the verse that the whole verse will select.
