I'd a Samsung Galaxy I5510 with stock rom, android 2.2. Whenever I double-clicked any word in an input field it got selected. Now I bought a Samsung Galaxy Ace I still have stock rom and andrond 2.3.4 and double-clicking a word does nothing. Is there any way I can get this functionality back? It was very useful to add words to swype after typing them.

Apparently this functionality lays on the keyboard. I'd and old version of Swype (which came installed). After rooting, I followed this instructions to update Swype and now I get this functionality back. Good luck to everyone!
