    Yes, I'm aware of and use the magnifying glass tool to make edits to text as necessary, but I don't thing anyone can deny that arrow keys could come in handy.

    Could Apple not put them in the same black bar above the virtual keyboard where the "Previous" and "Next" buttons appear? I think that might be a great spot for them...

    Agreed, navigating around a text file would be a lot easier with cursor keys available.

    I have got on better than I thought I might with the iPad keyboard, but the addition of cursor keys would improve things a lot. I have always found the magnifying glass thing very fiddly.

    The magnifying glass has its uses (select/select all, copy/paste), but it's horrible for going back 3 letters...agghh. On iPad, there's no excuse for not incorporating arrow keys.
