I use my iPad with a keyboard a lot for writing but I think Apple has made a mistake with IOS 9.
I used to be able to shift-option-arrow to select words from a start point to wherever I place the cursor. But now when I press shift-option-left it expands the selection left and when I press shift-option-right it expands it to the right.
I can no longer reduce the selection using the keyboard. It only expands.
It should work just like on my Mac. Why change this?
This is a bad decision. It's affecting Evernote, Day One. But strangely is not affecting the Google search box in Safari.
I feel frustrated now when I try to edit text and I have downgraded to IOS 8 so that the device is usable for my main use case.
