Selecting Text in Tricky Situations
In certain situations, such as when you're working with a tightly packed table, selecting passages of text with precision with the mouse can be difficult. There's a handy trick to help you through these trying times. Place the insertion point where you want the selection to start, press F8, and click the insertion point where you want the selection to end. All text in between these two points will be selected, and you needn't worry about the clumsiness of the mouse.
