Selecting text on Playbook Mini Keyboard

I just bought myself the Blackberry-branded mini keyboard for the Playbook. I know I could've gone with many aftermarket ones, but I didn't want the hassle of partial incompatibility. Now this keyboard has a touchpad included too. I'm starting to get the gist of how to use one finger for left-click and two fingers for right-click, etc. But what I can't seem to get is how to text using the mini keyboard's touchpad. I've looked at several Youtube videos, but I see it being used in a few of those videos but no idea how they do it. I suppose I could just bring my fingers upto the screen itself and just do it that way, but that sort of defeats the purpose of having a keyboard/pad.

Re: Selecting text on Playbook Mini Keyboard

Hi, thanks for the link. I guess it partially answered the question. It mentions a copy/paste function available while in Documents To Go. But I guess this similar functionality is not available in the general operating environment?

Re: Selecting text on Playbook Mini Keyboard

it's been 4 months. Did you finally found how to do that outside DocsToGo ?

Nope, guess it's not possible.
