Nook software update-->better highlighting interface still needed!

This function is still quite clunky--even in latest software version 1.2.0.  

I've highlighted a word & submitted a note twice today trying to make it work, but when I want to view the note, it's like it never happened either time.  So this whole interface needs to be more efficient, transparent & user-friendly.  

+ Also when trying to target a word to "start highlighting", it doesn't let you select the 1st word of a paragraph without selecting the last word in previous paragraph along with it.

+ The cursor could be more responsive... it's quite sluggish, which makes selecting text, a slow process.

+ And when inputting a note, it frequently inserts a random period, which isn't even a choice on querty keyboard (you need to select [123 board] to get #'s & punctuation!)  

The bookmark feature works great BUT highlighting/notes feature needs MORE WORK, please!    Thank you  4/11/10

highlighting upgrade needed!

And here's another issue:  

Problem #1: The SUBMIT key for highlighting is right next to the CLEAR key, so if you tap SUBMIT too hard, it clears what you have spent time carefully highlighting.  

 

Problem #2: When you go back to that same section to try to reapply the highlighter, you no longer have that option!  It won't give you the:  START SELECTION key for that section it just CLEARed when you tried to SUBMIT!  CLEAR (which you didn't select!) seens to take precedence forever, over: START SELECTION (to highlight!)  OUCH!
