Space bar cursor


Am I the only one who didn’t know that when typing on the onscreen keyboard on iPhone or iPad, a left swipe on the space bar brings up on on screen cursor?

    :) Well, it is a hidden feature. And I think it was new to a relatively recent iOS release. Maybe iOS 11 or 12?

    That is cool. For me it is kinda a press on space bar and a little drag to the left. And interestingly the curses only works in the text part of the window. It certainly should win an award for problems for no -discoverable. However nothing beats windows 8 - when you opened an app and there was no clear way to get out of it. And not just a funny curser was hard to discover but how to get all charms - which controlled everything - was a giant game of chance.

    Good to know -- I'm going to have to try that on my iPad.
