    not sure if this is just me........
    On iPad to edit a word when typing you rest your finger on a word and a magnifying glass appears which you can move until you are above the letter you want to change. This works fine on all my apps such as notes, email, farcebook, word etc.
    However on Fun, resting my finger on a word turns the word pink if it is misspelt and will only let me change the whole word. It does suggest a replacement word, but often this is not correct if you have made a mess of the word or its an unusual word/placename etc. Also the word does not turn pink if it is a correctly spelt word but he wrong word of you know what i mean.
    Not a huge deal but annoying to have to retype the whole word when only one letter is wrong.
    Is just me or does anyone else have this problem?
    Is it a @Jim "enhancement"?

    Hi @makems

    If you turn off the keypad, bottom right you can then go back into the word to edit and the keyboard comes back up, not quite the same as the magnifier I know.

    Trying on safari on iPad now and it works OK magnifier and everything, the previous reply was related to Opera mini on iPad.

    on my iPhone, assume it's same as iPad, if you keep your finger there for a few seconds the magnifier should work
