insertion point

The insertion point is a blinking vertical line or I-beam in text that indicates where the next character you type will appear.

To place the insertion point, double-tap a shape, text box, or table cell, then tap where you want to place the insertion point.

To reposition the insertion point, drag the insertion point to where you want it. You can also drag two fingers over the keyboard, then lift your fingers when the insertion point is where you want it.
