Select words on iOS

Imagine that I have two words in a note: “Hello friends”

I have the selected word “friends” but I want to select “friends” so in any application in iOS I hold down the blinking cursor first and drag whatever I want to select.

Seems like this basic thing doesn’t work on ipad’s DEVONthink?

It’s strange…


Text selection works for me
I can drag the right or left bar

What format note are you using; I tested with a formatted note and Apple Pencil
