Backspace needs to be fixed

When you hold backspace on the iPad, it deletes letters quickly, then it begins to delete words. On ms word, it deletes letters quickly but instead of deleting words, it deletes letters, but slowly.

I am having the exact same problem! I use my iPad every day to take notes in class and since I am always typing so fast I make a lot of errors. It is VERY irritating when the entire next line is deleted and I have to keep hitting the undo button when I am already in a time crunch! PLEASE FIX!!

@Syd - mine does the same thing. I've submitted a request that this be fixed via email over a month ago and I am told that they are working on this. It makes editing a problem!

The problem is a bit more complex on my iPad. When I hit delete, it highlights down to the next line and deletes that as well. Makes for constant use of the undo key.
