    Writing on tablets is a subpar experience as long as highlighting is required for cancellation.

    Confucius (would) say: “Highlighting text you erase is like polishing vase you throw out window!

    Writing on tablets stinks unless all your forward-deletion / connection needs can be handled by one single “action” button.

    This button exists. The concept is devastatingly simple… and it is based on this Word 5 for DOS macro of 1988.


    Before you run away figuring I’m crazy, consider in the plain speak of 1988 word processor Unga Bunga code what that single line containing only one variable does.

    Cursor hop one space to the left – “taste” (and memorize) the value of whatever you find there – Cursor go back right to original position – set highlight extender ON – and with highlighting ON, forward search to the “tasted” value case insensitive – delete the highlighting.

    That alone does it all

    You probably still don’t get it… not because you’re dumb… but because it’s not sophisticated enough.

    In any case I can prove it to you conceptually, on a filmed computer simulation (me using only one key (Function Key 2) to do all and sundry forward deletions and connections WITHOUT ANY WHATSOEVER need for highlighting (no matter how effected)… all the while using only one action button. Which we shall agree to call [*] (asterisk inside square brackets AKA the cat’s ass).

    1. [*] kills one word at a time
    Explanation: [*] hops to the left “tastes and memorizes” the space, hops back into position and cancels up to and including the first space it finds – effectively doing a CTRL-DEL (windows).

    Permit me to point out that there happens to be a space before every single word in the universe… except for those words that start with tabs and paragraphs. Tabs let’s forget about right now… but paragraphs, brings us to

    2. [*] kills one paragraph at a time
    Explanation: If on its quick leap to the left [*] finds an optionally visible paragraph mark then he returns in place and cancels one paragraph at a time – very cleanly. On your tablet… same button that killed those single words.

    But oftentimes better yet

    3. [*] kills from anywhere in the paragraph to the end of the paragraph
    Explanation: it’s a tap-tap (Hit Enter followed by [*]… and re-read point two.

    Already the three things above are pretty cool on a single button, but unfortunately for all the other deletion systems [*] does more… a helluva lot more.

    It’s that one line of Unga-Bunga code.

    [*] “tastes” the character immediately to the left of the cursor, returns to position and then kills all the text up to and including the first instance of the “tasted” letter.

    Therefore [*] can kill up to and including every punctuation mark… symbol, number, accented letter, mathematical sign…


    …up to and including everything a keyboard has to offer!

    Think it through in slow motion. Read the sentence below and then edit the entire first part and just leave the quote.

    In the words of the great Hungarian scientist Janos von Neumann:
    “If people do not believe that mathematics is simple, it is only because they do not realize how complicated life is.”

    [*] does the job with a single tap.
    Explanation: If YOU tap in a quotation mark, [*] will cancel up to the first quotation it finds. Neumann’s quotation started with a quotation mark… so why not take advantage of connection-style deletion?

    Tap-tap. Done.
    On today’s tablets? Ye put thine finger on yon screen… Or you tap tap tap tap highlight extender key – hit backspace and adjust.

    How about only saving one short line from Neumann’s quote above. This one:

    mathematics is simple

    Easy! To start with Insert an “m” at the top of the phrase and hit [*] twice


    m[*][*]In the words of the great Hungarian scientist Janos von Neumann: “If people do not believe that mathematics is simple, it is only because they do not realize how complicated life is.”

    Being a complete idiot [*] will first stop at the “m” of Neumann. So you need to tap-tap!

    How long did it take? A third of a second? All on the same button?

    Then to kill the rest:

    mathematics is simple[*], it is only because they do not realize how complicated life is.” (point three: [*] kills from anywhere in the paragraph to the end of the paragraph.

    All I can tell you is that word connection is fantastic… because that is how editors think.

    In most cases there is always a re-connection to a “good-to-go” word.

    For example:

    It was a bright and gloriously luminous day.

    Bah! No! Who wrote that crap?

    It was a sunny day.

    It was a sunny d[*][*]bright and gloriously luminous day.

    The good-to-go word above is obviously day. Editing is quite often a process of insertion and reconnection.


    5: With [*] you get connected to the word you want (in the case above 2 taps) and that’s all that matters. Yes of course OBVIOULSY you deleted, but said deletions were more like a sub-product of the connection. You don’t care… all that matters is getting your “good-to-go” word.

    That’s right! You can call the words you want to the cursor.

    So what’s my favorite text editor? The one above… Done up right and way better…

    [*] was born in 1988 as a connector. So what’s to keep you from tapping in a reserved letter and ordering [*] the faithful slave to take a vacation from being the most sophisticated word deletion system on the planet and OPENING stuff?

    You highlight a paragraph in Italian and then tap in “§” and your highlighted text gets translated before your eyes.

    will send out 10,000 scam letters
