Keyboard Backspace Without Erasing?

Does the iPad keyboard have anyway to move the cursor around a block of text for editing purposes? All I see is a destructive delete button.

Erasing All The Settings?
I wanted to erase all the settings that I had in iPad. I entered General->Reset->Erase all content and settings.

After that the silver line appeared and it finished, and then the Apple logo appeared and it never disappears again.

I connected the iPad to iTunes and there's no use, also I tried to shut it down by the sleep button "pressing until saying Slide to power off" and it doesn't work.

Windows Vista

Erasing And Removing All Settings
Recently I purchased a iPad off craigslist and on receiving my iPad I wanted to erase out all of the data and start from the beginning.. In doing so I consulted the online instructions and my question is how long should this take? It has been 24 hours and the iPad only shows the apply sign. I cannot turn it on or off and if I reset it, it just shows the same apple sign.. If anyone knows what I can do please let me know.. It's a 64g wifi. I'm just worried I killed it.. Not really, but I just wanted to know if anyone could help me.

Can't Sync IPad Without Erasing?
My hard drive failed a few weeks back. Since I had it replaced I had been working when I had time getting everything off my external back onto the computer and getting it up and running again. Today was the first day I tried syncing my iPad since the crash. It says it can't be synced because it's synced to another iTunes library, but it's the same account. I also had to authorize the computer as if it was a different computer. How do I get my iTunes to think it's the same account as before and not lose all my notes, contacts, bookmarks, and so on? I really don't want to have to start all that stuff over again.

Updating IOS Without Erasing Data?
A coworker has an iPad 1 and doesn't use iTunes. She is behind on OS updates and doesn't have the OTA software update feature in settings so it must be updated thru iTunes. So here is my question...Can I just take her iPad and update it to IOS 5 on my home computer without it erasing her apps, data, and media or will I need to create a backup first and do the update and restore from backup?

Erasing Imported Pictures From Camera On It?
I am trying to erase pictures on my iPad, which now is full of photos. And no success.One common way is to erase the photos on my computer, and then sync. Apart from being a awkward procedure (why make it impossible to erase pictures on the iPad directly?), the photos are not synced, they are imported from the cameras card directly into the iPad. No computer involved.Another way is to reset the iPad completely. Not an alternative, if I can avoid it. Do I really have to reset the device, thus erasing everything, just to get rid of the imported pictures?

Have Books Sync Without Erasing Music?
I had my iPad 2 set to sync eBooks automatically, and just found (when I added a new book) today that it's no longer set to that. No problem, I can drag-and-drop to sync manually, but it's one step more than I'd like to do - it would be great to just have any new eBooks automatically transfer to my iPad. The problem is that when I check the "Sync Books" box, iTunes warns me:"Are you sure you want to sync books? All existing songs, movies and TV shows on the iPad... will be removed."As it turns out, this warning rings true - I went to sync my eBooks to my iPhone the other day and all my music was deleted! Leaving aside the question of why syncing books should delete my music, I'm wondering if there's any way to manually manage my music while keeping books and other things on automatic sync.

Erasing Mail Messages From Search Engine?
If I swipe to the very first "page" for lack of a better word and put any letter in the iPad search NOT safari my mail pops up and I can read deleted messages from my email. I do not want people seeing my emails and I can find no way of erasing this search engine saved mail. It's been deleted from my mail for some time but is showing up in the search engine. I had to completely erase my iPad account and start over to remove my mail. I've cleared safari but this seems to do nothing on the iPad area search. Again now I can see the little mail icon and all of my new private emails are there for anybody to read who types in this area of my iPad.

Work Of Special Keys Of Keyboard Dock On Normal Keyboard
Does anyone know if the iPad function keys that are special to the iPad on the keyboard dock also work on the normal Apple Wireless Keyboard when pairing with bluetooth. Would the brightness up/down on the wireless keyboard also control the iPad's brightness, just like they do on the iPad keyboard? Would the iPod controls (play/pause, rewind, ff) and volume controls also work on the iPad?

Apps :: Extended Keyboard - Keyboard With Numbers And Letters All Available Without Switching
Just came across this free app in the App Store. It gives you a keyboard with numbers. And letters all available without switching. You can only use it inside it's own app but the copy all button allows you to copy and paste into any other app really easily. One thing worth noting, when you press copy all button there is no indication that anything has been copied........but it has!

Conflict Between Wireless Keyboard And Keyboard Docking Station
It would appear that if you have your IPAD in a keyboard docking station and you have a wireless keyboard nearby, the keyboard in the docking station exhibts unstable behavior, specficially: o keys will repeat without the key being held down o cap lock light will not light. Disabling the wireless keyboard (removing the batteries for example) seems to resolve the issue.

Apple Wireless Keyboard Vs Logitech Bluetooth Keyboard?
Decided to go with one of these instead of the folding ones But can't decide between these two. The apple keyboard is solid and lighter but expensive The Logitech comes with its own case and optimized for the iPad but heavier

If you support the apple, what case that's good but cheap you recommend besides a zip lock bag?

Is there a way to access the iPad keyboard while using the apple blutooth keyboard without pressing a button on the Bluetooth keyboard? There are times when I am away from my keyboard, but still need to type on the iPad. The only way I can figure out how to do it is to turn off my blutooth.Is there a setting on the iPad 2 or command/swipe that will bring up the onscreen keyboard?

Comaprison Of Wireless Keyboard And Keyboard Dock
Like many others here, I learned the hard way that the Apple case is not compatible with the Apple keyboard dock. I can't seem to locate the replacement case that I want in time for my next international trip (EDI on 5/31) so was wondering what I would lose to turn in the keyboard dock for the regular wireless keyboard. My primary question is about specific iPad buttons and shortcuts that work with the keyboard dock but not the wireless keyboard.

Keyboard Behavior When Bluetooth Keyboard Is Present?
Everything was great until I paired a new Apple aluminum bluetooth keyboard with my iPad. It worked fantastically and I really like the setup, except for one problem. When I try to use the on-screen keyboard now, sometimes it won't come up. The only way I can get the on-screen keyboard to come up is if I first push the upper-right key on the bluetooth keyboard. This has been a big problem when I don't carry the bluetooth keyboard with me.

Onscreen Keyboard When Wireless Keyboard Is Nearby?
There doesn't seem to be any way to get an on-screen keyboard when the iPad is still connected to a wireless keyboard that may be in the next room. All I see is that I could un-pair the keyboard, and I guess I could pull the batteries out of the keyboard, but there's no way to force the keyboard off otherwise.

Virtual Keyboard Is Easier Than Tactile Keyboard
I hear people complain a lot about iPad's virtual keyboard or I hear them say that the keyboard dock is necessary for typing longer documents. I actually find iPad's virtual keyboard easier to type on than a tactile keyboard, and I was wondering if I'm the only one.I often see people typing in landscape mode on their iPad with only one finger. Why not just type the correct way as you would on a tactile keyboard? That's the way I type and my typing is faster on the virtual keyboard. I think it's easier and faster because 1) I don't have to press down on each key, just lightly and quickly tap my fingers on the screen, and 2) iOS corrects and auto-capitalizes so many words that I save time by not needing to hold down shift keys or enter periods or apostrophes all the time.

Forcing Virtual Keyboard To Come Up Instead Of Physical Keyboard
I have a bluetooth keyboard working with my iPad (in fact, I'm typing up this message with it now). But I took my iPad to another room, and when I went to a text area to type, it still thought I was connected to my bluetooth keyboard. Needless to say, I couldn't type, and so I had to turn off my Bluetooth in order to bring the virtual keyboard back up again.

Is there a way to tell the iPad to bring up the virtual keyboard, even if the bluetooth one is currently connected?

Apple Wireless Keyboard - Languages Of Keyboard
I am thinking to buy an apple wireless keyboard for my iPad. The problem is that I have tried it (before buying) and though it was a Turkish layout, every time I tried to use the keyboard, the OS changed the keyboard language to English (even if I choose it as Russian). This might be due to the fact that Turkish is not out there as official keyboard languages yet (hoping that it will come out when the international iPads are out).Does anybody know (or can confirm) that apple wireless keyboard works with other keyboard languages than English? i.e., can anybody confirm that with Russian language selected for keyboard (from the preferences menu), apple wireless keyboard with Russian layout works correctly (does not switch to English layout)?

Bluetooth Keyboard/on Screen Keyboard Not Working
I purchased my Ipad a few hours ago from a local Apple store. One of the accessories I purchased was the aluminum bluetooth keyboard - the 2 battery model. I love the keyboard except when I don't want to use it (like when Im not home). Turning it off does not make the on screen key board appear; pressing the eject key (as the Apple support note said to do and I'm getting increasing frustrated!
