    Hi all,

    I searched the forums and couldn't find a similar thread.

    I am new to the iPad, and I am using my new "new iPad." I do a lot of text entry, mainly in Safari, but in other apps as well.

    Occasionally, I will touch a text box, the keyboard pops up on the screen and I begin to type, but the cursor remains in place. I hear the clicking sound from typing, but no text appears, and none of the virtual keys do anything.

    If I touch the button to make the keyboard disappear and then touch elsewhere in the same text box, it usually works.

    Anyone else have this problem? Any idea of what a solution might be?

    Thanks!

    Can't say I see that happen but touch screen kboards have their drawbacks . Usually my sounds are off. A click sound should represent a sure press on that key. I have many times had to concentrate on my key strikes as not to skip anything.
    It's possible yours might have a glitch. Get AppleStore advise if you feel it's not the normal expectation.

    Thanks. I did that a couple of times. My next step is to "Restore."

    I am also having trouble with copy / paste. I select and copy one word, but then I paste and it pastes the whole paragraph!
