    Hi, I am a proud owner of iPad Pro 12,9", and I love it.
    I've only a problem. I like to use the suggested word system as I type with Smart Keyboard, but sometimes it hints a mistaken word. Do you know if there's any shortcut on Smart Keyboard to cancel the suggested word and type the one I want, otherwise I need to use fingers to click on the small "x" to manually cancel that word and go on typing. Thanks!

    Not sure, but I know you don't have to hit the little x, you just have to press anywhere in the bubble. I don't think there is a shortcut as Apple didn't put an escape key on the keyboard.

    I end up hitting the grave's accent key where the ESC could would've been - make some tick marks then I have to backspace/delete and continue on.

    Sucks. That or I just hit the word in the "" but that ruins my momentum when typing.

    Thanks for replying. At least I'm not the only one with this problem. Sadly I find myself to press the missing-ESC key (actually ~ on iPad Pro keyboard). I think that Apple could give us a CMD-something shortcut to help our hands not to leave the keyboard while typing.
    Another problem I have found is the capital letter at the beginning or after a full stop. If I don't want to use it, I have to type two letters and then delete the capital one, for example:

    "I bought an iPad. iPad is a wonderful tablet."

    When I start typing the "i" of iPad is capital and even if I press the shift key, it goes on with capital anyway. I have to type "Ii" and then delete the I.
    Very bad imho.

    This might help you guys:

    If you want to BACKSPACE/DELETE - it's CONTROL H
    If you want to delete entire word, it's OPTION DELETE
    If you want symbols, it's OPTION (any key)

    Nevermind, these only work in the NOTES app.

    Here's some of the shortcuts I use a lot for selecting and editing text with the Smart Keyboard.
    They work in every app I've tried so far, so I think they may be system wide.

    Hold Shift and Arrows Left/Right - Select one character at a time

    Hold Option & Shift and Arrows Left/Right - Select one word at a time

    Hold Control & Shift and Arrows Left/Right - Select entire sentence

    Hold Option and Arrows Left/Right - Move one word at a time

    Hold Control or Command and Arrows Left/Right - Move to start or end of sentence
