Text Selection

It is often necessary to select large sections of text. The Editor supports a few selection methods that you can use.

Selecting All Document Contents

To select all contents of the document, click inside the editing area and press the  toolbar button. All document elements, including text, images, and tables, will be highlighted. You can now format your content by selecting a Style, Font, Size, etc.

Alternatively, you can also use the Ctrl+A keyboard shortcut to select everything inside the editing area.
 

Selecting a Section of the Document

A popular way to select document sections is with the use of your mouse. Keeping the left mouse button pressed, drag your mouse over the document content that you want to select. The selection process will finish when you release the mouse button. The section selected with your mouse will become highlighted. Individual words can also be selected by double-clicking on them.

You can also select a section of text with the use of Keyboard Shortcuts.

Shift+Arrow lets you select the text by letters and the Ctrl+Shift+Arrow — by words.

The Shift+Home combination selects the text from the cursor to the start of the current line, while the Shift+End — from the cursor to the end of the current line.

The combination of Ctrl+Shift and the Home or End keys let you select the text from the cursor to the beginning or end of the document, respectively.

The Shift+PgDn and Shift+PgUp shortcuts select a text fragment of approximately the length of the editing area starting from the cursor and going down and up the text, respectively.
