at a portable multifunction device including one or more processors, memory, and a touch screen display:
displaying content of an electronic document on the display;
detecting a selection input corresponding to selection of a respective portion of the content;
in response to detecting the selection input, changing an appearance of the respective portion of the content to indicate that the respective portion of the content has been selected, wherein the respective portion of the content that has been selected comprises selected content;
while displaying the selected content with the changed appearance, detecting a single touch input on the touch screen display at a location over the selected content; and
in response to detecting the single touch input at the location, in accordance with a determination that the single touch input remains, during a first portion of the single touch input, at the location for a predetermined amount of time, followed, during a second portion of the single touch input, by a continuous touch gesture away from the location, moving a representation of the selected content to a different location in a direction of the continuous touch gesture, wherein the representation of the selected content is an additional representation of the selected content, and moving the additional representation of the selected content includes moving the additional representation of the selected content offset from the selected content in a direction of the continuous touch gesture to indicate a position to where the selected content will be moved when the continuous touch gesture terminates.
