    I am finding that selecting text to copy it does not always work.

    1 can text on any web page or app be selected?
    2 what is the correct way to select the text? Maybe I'm doing it wrong.

    Thanks.

    1) On any webpage you can. The apps, it depends if the developer implemented the copy and paste and select and/or depending on how they display the content.
    2) I just double tap the word I want to highlight if it is something I'm working on (meaning text message, email or notes, etc) or if it is static (webpage or something) I usually double tap but on the second tap hold to make sure it knows I want to select it. Just my way of making sure it knows what I want.
