when typing a lengthy bit of text into one of those typically

throws up some error when i click Submit and then i have had to type
it all over again.
does Netsurf2 respond to the usual keyboard shortcut, Ctrl-A, to
all the text in a field?
or do i still have to drag the mouse painfully from beginning to end
of the field? i say painfully, because the action of scrolling in
that typically annoyingly small pane can lose the existing selection.
Not sure if Ctrl-A works in a textarea but you'd need to do Ctrl-A
Ctrl_C to copy everything. I still have problems trying to edit in a
textarea and in particular anything pasted still goes in a line above
Like Peter, if I have a lot to type I use an Edit window and then save
it into the textarea.
