highlight extension hotspot

Doug Sep 20, 2017 12:19AM PDT

After I highlight a word using a double-tap, I have difficulty finding the hotspot with either my finger or Apple Pencil to extend the highlight. Almost every time, I lose the highlighted word and the cursor appears where my finger/pencil was. I’ve increased the size of the screen to make the boxes at either end of the highlighted word larger, but it hardly ever works.

I’m using a 10.5 inch iPad Pro and an Apple pencil. Has anyone else reported this problem? If so, has the solution been posted? Thanks.

As an alternative, using the “select all” option highlights a paragraph. Is there a menu option to select a sentence? My primary goal is to select different colours for relevant sentences, but it’s very difficult to be able to extend the highlight over the whole sentence. Thanks.
