Forward Delete And Ipad
The iPad comes with a software keyboard that might look simple at first sight. In reality, that keyboard hides many useful advanced shortcuts that you can use in order to make your life easier. This on-screen keyboard is designed to cover most of the user needs that are known, but sometimes more advanced tasks are tricky to complete. For example, the way in which you are supposed to enter your name is intuitive while the ability to forward delete on the iPad is a hidden secret.
That’s why if you want to extend the capabilities of your iPad you should consider pairing it with a hardware keyboard. However, you shouldn’t dismiss the software keyboard provided because it’s a standard QWERTY keyboard that makes available SHIFT, RETURN, BACKSPACE and SPACE keys along with the ?123 key that’s designed to make available a secondary keyboard that allows you to choose the punctuation and the numbers of your interest. While editing text on the iPad you will also notice that some actions are automatic. For example, the first letter of every sentence will always be capitalized while every word that you let the text prediction system to incorporate comes with a space to the right. These are features that will help you warm up to the iPad’s virtual keyboard in a matter of seconds.
If you switch to a hardware keyboard, you will be able to extend those features with the possibility to use a large selection of keyboard combinations. For example, you will be able to easily adjust volume by using the F11 and F12 keys or screen brightness through the F1 and F2 keys. About forward delete I can tell you once again that it’s a goal tricky to achieve. If you are really interested, you should use the CMD+K combination that will delete all the characters in between the insertion point and the end of line or the CMD+F combination that will move the cursor forward, so you will be able to simply use the backspace key in order to forward delete characters on the iPad. You must admit that these two combinations are pretty interesting and can prove extremely useful at times.
You should also know that while the hardware keyboard of your choice is connected to your iPad you can use many other shortcuts. For example, you can use CMD+E to move the cursor to the end of the line, CMD+A to jump directly to the beginning of any line, CMD+B to shift the cursor back, CMD+N to switch to the line that follows and CMD+F to move back, to a line that was current previously. There are also possible other shortcuts familiar to most Windows users.
