Default Editing text on Galaxy Tab 2 10.1

I'm finding this new Tablet very frusrating. How do I navigate to the top of a text field? Is there a way to jump to the top?

For instance when I reply to an email, the cursor starts at the bottom, below all of the other text. So, I try to scroll up, but if I am not slow and super careful, I bump up against the top of the text box and then the cursor drops back to the bottom of the text box.

This seems to happen anywhere that I enter text whether it is the built in mail app or entering text into a web based form.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Tap lightly where you want the cursor to be. If you are new to tablets and touch screens, it takes a short while to get the feel of tapping.

Also, there are other keyboards available (Skype) which have cursor movement keys.

OK, but my question is ... how do I get the cursor to the top of the text box. Is there a 'shortcut' of some sort to jump to the top?

Thanks, BDT
