Writer is gesture-based. Gestures are subtle yet natural. And once learned, they are never forgotten.
Touch a word to select it. Touch between words to insert text between words (appropriate spacing will be included automatically).

Touch and hold on a word for a moment. Then drag your finger with the flow of text to select a range of words. Or, drag your finger against the flow of text to reposition the starting point.
touch and hold with two fingers
Touch and hold with two fingers to target a precise insertion point between your fingers. Drag your fingers to move the insertion point.
double tap with two fingers
Tap twice with two fingers to copy selected text or paste text into an insertion point.
