Unable to drag arrows to select text using mobile word app


  • I'm using the mobile Word app on my windows phone; a Nokia Lumina 900 running Windows Phone 7.8 and Microsoft Word Mobile version 14.5

    According to the help instructions, I can select text by clicking on a word and then drag the arrows at either end of that wors to wherever I want, then click the format icon as many times as needed to achieve the desired result.

    Well, this works sometimes, but not always and nothing I do seems to make a differance. I can do it several times repeatedly then the next time I try to do it, it doesn't work. The word is selected but I'm unable to drag the arrows.

    I've tried saving and then continuing but it still doesn't work. Only if I exit and go back in will I be able to do it again, but only a certain number of times and then it stops working again.

    Is this a bug or can you only do it so many times?
