Hi Michael;

If you place the cursor at the beginning of the sentence you want to copy, 
then press the F8 key 1 time to turn extended selection mode on, you can now 
arrow up or down to select additional lines of text.  Hope this helps.  Take 
care.
Mike

Press F8 to turn on selection mode, and then press F8 once to select a word,
twice to select a sentence, three times to select a paragraph, or four times
to select the document. Press ESC to turn off the selection mode.
