Hide keyboard while selecting text in iOS

textediting

#1

This may be an iOS thing outside your control.

But I’ve just been rearranging text in a longish note by selecting, cutting and pasting. It’s a real pain that the keyboard keeps popping up as soon as I select text. I have to manually close it to have enough screen space to navigate to my new insertion point.

Unfortunately indeed not something that iOS allows to do.
