    Unhappy What gestures?

    I'm a complete newbie when it comes to tablets and mobile surfing in general and especially using Android and Transformer Prime gestures. All I can do is resize the text, but haven'tvote clue about even the basic functions like highlight text, copy and paste. Today I discovered my back space key on keywords had turned into delete key and then back again - but how on earth? I have of course the same problem with Polaris office (where cut and paste is also my daily need) never mind some of the problems I have trying find "New message" button... I think this tablet could be MUCH more useful if help files to get started/ documentation were included with every new machine. My other question is how do I create a sync folder so I can use the Asus web storage? Again, the instructions are useless. I also want to know if its is possible to upload my music and movies from my Windows laptop so I could then download them into my tablet. Of course it would be much easier if I could hook up my external drive via NORMAL SIZED USB port, say,via some sort of dongle or converter plug... Thanks for your understanding and patience.

    Welcome to the forum. Lets break this down.

    To select text, copy, paste, just do a long press on the text, drag the grips around the text and then the CUT COPY and PASTE buttons are at the top of the screen.

    Long press is equivalent to a right click in windows for many other things too.


    As far as documentation, yes, it is quite lacking. Try checking out this thread: The Master Help Guide
    It will help walk you through the basics of android up through lots of help and support issues.

    I have not used ASUS Webstorage Sync, so I am not gonna answer that one.

    You can transfer music one of many ways. microSD, plug your Prime into your PC via USB and drag and drop.
    There is also a USB adapter:

    If you want to connect a USB drive directly to the tablet.

    Hi. Everyone is a newbie at one time or another. You can get a usb adaptor for the prime here which will fit into the charging port on the Prime at the bottom. You may want to read other threads warning about Polaris office. It has a serious bug in it and most recommend avoiding it and using another product. Asus can't provide a lot of documentation with the tablet about how to cut, paste, highlight etc. because they are app specific, and everyone seems to like different apps. There is a lot of help here on specific apps all you have to do is post in the right forum and someone with experience will help you. Hope this helps some.

    Frederuco, your'e quick!
