Default How to 'Select All'

Please Login to Remove!

hi

anyone know how to 'Select All' in either a list (eg emails) or within some text eg inside an email

or even select with shift then immediatly go to top or bottom or list or text

eg Shift then B or T doesnt do anything

currently I do it by pressing shift key then scrolling down, but this can take ages with big lists and text


Im after something like 'Cntrl A' in windows


thanks

To select ALL to delete or mark open , go to the top date bar and select delete prior or mark prior open.

In a long email or text field... you can't, other than as you are with holding down shift.

ok

in an email I found instead of using trackball I can use 'space' which then selects a page at a time. but I use the track ball for the first letter or 2 of what I want to copy (after pressing shift first)

this doesnt work in lists of things, ie lists of emails or lists of RSS feeds in Viigo


its a small issue, but I like copying chunks of stuff around, Im so used to control A in windows.

also do you know a keyboard shortcut to move the curser quickly to the end or begining of a line of text, rather than using the trackball

a bit like 'end' or 'home' in windows

What a timely post! I've been trying to figure out how to do a mass delete all week. Thanks, JSanders!
