Today, I do not have a SQL Server blog. Today’s post is about a solution to a problem that I faced recently when working with documents stored on Sharepoint Online.

It used to be Long press text Wait for a cursor to pop up above the text The swipe a little down and move the cursor to the place where you actually want it to be. Help! Long press does show the floating cursor anymore. Your cheese has been moved! Now what? Here’s my
advice Keep calm and tap twice Tap a word. That will select it, and show the well-known selection handles – two dots that you can grab and move to increase or decrease the selection Tap the word again. This will deselect it again, place the cursor in front of it, with a single dot-handle below it. Now tap on that dot and move your finger around.
