Select vs select all in iOS Mellel

It seems like Mellel for iOS does not allow the selection of specific words or sentences when not using an external keyboard. The only option available in the pop-up menu when selecting with the finger is “select all”. It this correct? Am I missing something?

How is this in any way related to Scrivener?

No one here is likely to know anything about Mellel, as this is a user forum for a competing product, Scrivener.

Apologies. Wrong message board!

No, wrong forum!

If you’re really looking for help on this you should be contacting the Mellel developers.
