Playing Alphabetty on a tablet, can't "click and drag"!

I keep seeing the same question being answered in the same way, but it doesn't seem to work for me - I can't link letters, and all the answers say click with your mouse and then drag across the letters.  I'm playing via Facebook on a tablet, I don't have a mouse, and when I try dragging it just drags the whole page across instead of selecting any letters.  It did work one time I played and I managed a few levels, but now it's not working again.  I have no idea why it worked that one time, I don't know what I did differently!

Anyone have any ideas?

    How would you normally highlight something on a tablet? (I don't own one so don't know)...Could you hold down the 'shift' key while choosing the letters?....Otherwise I guess you'll have to wait for the mobile app. :(

    I would normally just touch the first letter then swipe across the ones I wanted, similar to swapping candies/gems etc. But when I try that it just moves the whole page around. It's so frustrating because it did work that one time and I don't know why!

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
