Problems annotating on kobo touch?

When making annotations on the kobo touch does anyone find it difficult to get the last character of a paragraph?

I can never seem to get the blighter, I'm always undershooting or overshooting.

Sometimes I just feel it would be better if I could just mark the start words and end words and have the system detect any punctuation characters that should be at the start and end and highlight them accordingly.

Yup, definitely needs tweaking. Sometimes I'll try and rotate my finger to get that last character, but it's always a crapshoot.

It's also pretty tricky to annotate a passage that spans across two pages. I usually end up changing the font size temporarily or giving up.

I too have this problem. I have taken to doing the "dog ear" at the top right then adding a note to that. Not as exact as I would like, but kind of works. If I need the highlight, I do the font size change.

Another problem I have is when I try drag the highlighter down the highlighter actually moves down, so i have to move it backup again.
Hope that makes sense.

Highlighting over multiple pages is just too difficult. They should let you change pages when your in highlighting mode.

I really think a system like what they do on opera might be better.
1st press highlight word
2nd press highlight sentence
3rd press highlight paragraph

I think I'll put this suggestion in with the firmware feature request thread;
Hopefully mods won't get annoyed.

I was having a lot of trouble getting that last character for an annotation as well, until I accidentally found a way around it by dragging the highlighter to the line below the one I'm highlighting. Then I can move my finger all the way to left to get rid of any highlighting I don't want while getting that last character on the line above.

Hope that helps - and makes sense!
