    It used to be a pain to SELECT ALL, but it was doable. Before 11.0.1. Now I can't do it at all! I listen to stuff on an app, Natural Reader.

    To get the stuff I want to listen to on that app, I need to add it. If it's a file I saved from my desktop to One Drive, or Google Drive, I can try to add it automatically, as Natural Reader is connected, however, many times the file just doesn't open. So the best/easiest way, is for me to open the file in its own app, copy the text, start a new file in Natural Reader, and paste it. I used to get these text files from web sites, from One Drive, from Google Drive, by opening them and selecting all.

    Now it seems that just doesn't work. No matter how much I fiddle with the points on the select edges, pull them to the side, to the top of the file, nothing selects all anymore. In Safari there is no way to select all. I just need some way to select all the text on a file I have open.

    Please help!

    If you can get the blinking cursor in between words then you can press and hold to choose the “Select All” option. It works in the native Notes app and other apps where you have a blinking cursor. In Safari, I could not get a blinking cursor on the few web pages I visited. The entire word is highlighted and as I drag my finger across the page, each word is highlighted individually. Without being able to get a blinking cursor, I was unable to select all.

    I also am annoyed by the inability to select all in Safari. I tried various browsers and found Brave which allows select all.
