If you have been using a hardware keyboard for your work, you might wonder why there's no arrow keys on the iPad's software keyboard. Although you can tab the cursor at a certain point, all too often it is just not accurate enough.
In fact, iPad's on screen keyboard can be turned to a trackpad! In the "trackpad mode", you can move the cursor with ease, you may even be surprised of its efficient and precision positioning of your cursor.
Turn your keyboard into a trackpad - Touch and hold the keyboard with two fingers until it turns light gray. Now drag around to move the cursor.
