Swype has a great feature of sliding between the Swype key and:

  • a - Select all
  • c - Copy
  • x - Cut
  • v - Paste
  • m - Open selection in Google Maps
  • g - Google for selection

It's much quicker than long-pressing and then (for example) going into the More menu for Select All.

Can SwiftKey do something like this?

(Feel free to tell me any other killer shortcuts while you're at it)

3 years later and Swype being unfortunately dead my solution was to switch back to Gboard.

Apparently Swiftkey doesn't give a s**t to customers needs.
