I've just seen this on Mumsnet. I haven't tried it yet but it sounds like an easier way of fixing the cursor at the desired point in a text.

"So I have just discovered by holding down the space bar on my phone keyboard, I can move the cursor to wherever I want on my message...."

This doesn’t seem to work on an iPhone but I can press on the cursor and slide it to wherever I want. My GD taught me that.

I can move my cursor just by tapping the spot I want. Don't need to use space bar. How have you moved it until now?

It doesn't work on my iPhone or iPad.

I would be wary of clicking on this link.

On an iPhone place the cursor nearest to where you want it, by tapping it. Then hold your finger on the cursor until you get a magnified image of it. Now you can slide your finger - and cursor - to wherever you want it.
