Select all - cut/backspace is a hassle. On my 5 year old Razr if you held down the backspace button it began deleting whole words at a time (like iOS) but eventually cleared everything. While I don't particularly like this method it would be nice to have a quicker way of clearing all text, such as maybe activating caps lock and then hitting backspace. Any thoughts?

I agree that's why I suggested the caps lock option it would be almost impossible to hit that combo accidentally. Also, in what will be another thread they need am undo/repeat function

I really don't think this a hassle, and it clears the entire body of a text:

Tap a word > choose "Select All" > press the backspace button once.

A shift slide delete would do this nicely.
