When writing on Android, such as YouTube comments, I sometimes need to change word orders or paste words. Cutting an existing word is easy: just long press the word and then select "Cut". But I have been having difficulties in pasting the test at the right position.
For example, let's say that I have copied "vicious" in the clipboard, and I want to paste it into an existing sentence "I saw a dog." between "a" and "dog". If I try to long-press the space between "a" and "dog", the word "dog" gets selected. I can then select "Paste", but then the current selection gets replaced by it, which is not what I want. I cannot find anyway to past a word without selecting anything.
I am using Gboard (Google Keyboard).
