    When typing a line of text such as a web address or memo, I need to move back to a place and make a change. It is hard to get to the exact place with my fingers. Is there a trick to back up a letter at a time or word without erasing? I have read about a capacitive stylus and searched virtual trackballs, but figured someone here has the answer. Thanks.

    Just always had to tap with my fingers to try and get my cursor where I wanted it. It's a bit of trial and error to get get the right cursor placement but it works.

    Some aftermarket keyboards like "thumb keyboard" have different layouts that have on screen arrows to help with those tasks...but the keyboard on the nook works so well that I'd hate to use something else...but it's an option ;)
