A much promoted feature of PR 1.1 on the Nokia N9 was the addition of arrow keys, a button to copy, a button to paste, and so forth. However this feature is quite a bit harder than expected to find. It definitely took me a while to find it, and even then, it's not quite straightforward to access.
You have to enable the Swype keyboard, if you have not already. Go to Settings, Time and Language, Text input. Enable Swype.
To access the Swype keyboard, swipe from the left edge of the keyboard to the right edge, or the other way round.
From within the Swype keyboard, swipe from the Swype symbol (white hand with blue squiggle), to the world icon with your region (in my example below it is EN).
And voila, there is the arrow keys, copy, paste, select all, etc.
