Hi,

I can not find a way to highlight anything, other than a single word, in the web app.

When I select the first word the copy/search/highlight menu pops up but, as soon as you try to extend the selection it disappears.

is this a bug?

I'm using Chrome on Windows, and this is what I get.

Hi Bill,

l’ve just loaded the Chrome browser on my iPad. However, just the same as with Safari. I touch a word and the menu pops up, then when I drag a handle to enlarge the selection the menu disappears and stays gone, normally it would pop up again when you lift your finger off of the screen indicating you have finished selecting. 

I have an iPad Pro running the latest version of iPadOS.

Obviously a bug.

Hi Anthony,

You can bring up the text selection pop up via touch by press and holding the multi-word selection after you've made your selection.

Hi Joe,

Thank you very much for that Info. I am so used to using either ipad or windows PC that I didn’t realise the web app worked differently in that respect.

I’ve edited bug out of the title of the post.

i can now go to bed a happy buddy.

You can select the ability by clicking the button at the top-right corner of the panel, Hover over the Select button. Next you can select by rectangle with the following actions, Drag the pointer on the map to create a new selection.
