Improve Text Selection, Cut, Copy/Paste
The way text selection and Cut, Copy/Paste works on WP7 needs to be improved a lot!
First of all it needs bigger handles/levers to select text.
It needs magnifying glass when selecting text
And finally we should be able to select individual letters from a word if we want to. Try selecting "Micro" or "Cros" in "Microsoft", you can't do it, it selects the full word, this should be improved.
At first I thought text selection was broken in WP8.1 but now I can see it has actually been improved. The major issue is that there is no indicator/magnification when you are trying to place the cursor.
I'd actually prefer they added cursor keys like on the touch keyboard on windows 8. Those, along with a CTRL button, really help me to quickly edit text on a touch screen.

We need to be able to select all and cut the selected text.
IT IS TOTAL ABSURDITY TO NOT BE ABLE TO SELECT ALL OR CUT THE SELECTED TEXT.
Add select all option!
Yeah and must be able to copy/paste text from ANY app including Bing Maps as long as it's not text from a picture.
