Extend Selection Mode
Pressing [F8] lets you quickly select text by pressing any letter, punctuation mark, or navigation key.
To demonstrate this feature, say you want to select all the text from the cursor to the end of the current paragraph:
Press [F8] and then hit [Enter]. Now, click anywhere in the document and type a letter.
When you do, Word will start with the location of the cursor and select the text up to and including the letter you typed.
While Extend Selection is on, you can keep typing the same character (or any other) to extend the selection.
You can also press the arrow keys to select text in any direction.
To turn the Extend Selection mode off, press [Esc] or [F8] or double-click on EXT in the status bar.
