The fastest way I've found is to actually swipe from the "m/?" or "z/!" keys directly to the space bar. That'll insert a punctuation mark and then a space. In the same fashion, you can insert a period or a comma. The other similar shortcut I use creates an "'s" by swiping from the apostrophe to the "s". Some similar suggestions can be found in Swype's ...

There is unfortunately no way to directly edit the dictionary. You can delete any user-added word by highlighting it and hitting the Swype key.


13

You do not have to use shift, if you hold down the 'm' key for a longer time it will insert its alt key, a question mark.

Open up the memo application (or anywhere that you can enter text), enter the "ki" that's giving you problems, highlight it and hit the Swype key on the lower left; it will prompt you to delete the word. In general it will remember new words that you enter; you may have to type them out letter-by-letter first.

Another confirmation that the back tick isn't on Swype. But, you don't need to dig that deep to switch.. Long press in the input area, choose "Input method" and then you can select the Samsung or Android keyboards. Another long press and two clicks and you are back to Swype.

If you only need the backtick for when you're entering code on StackExchange sites, then there's actually no reason to type the character. Any time you're in a Question or Answer box, there's a set of icons just above the box, pressing the 101 010 button puts a pair of matching backticks into the text box at the current cursor location, with some replacable ...

That's a standard Android warning. You get that warning when you try to install any keyboard. Nope, it won't collect any such data.

Holding down the '. key will get you a menu of extra characters to type. I saw the ` there. 2012-10-09 Update: I recently check with the beta version of Swype, and noticed that the ` had moved to r4 key, but my original answer is still valid for the version of Swype built into my phone. Future versions of Swype may move special keys around, and you may need ...

you can long-press on the letter Q to quickly change language on Swype

Press and hold the 'o' key. At first you'll get a pop-up showing the left parenthesis. Hold it longer and you'll get another popup showing accents for the character.

I believe this problem was caused by having Swype installed to the SD card. Moving Swype back to the phone's internal storage seems to have fixed the problem. Settings-->Applications-->Manage Applications-->Swype-->Select "move to phone"

Capitalizing in Swype is pretty easy. If I wanted to swype Joe I would hit the j and then swype to a point above the keyboard on the screen, then back down to o and e. If I wanted to do JOE, I would swype from j to a point above the keyboard, then do a little loop while still above the keyboard, then swype to o and e. So, in order to get a capital I, hit ...

The version of Swype pre-loaded on most Gingerbread Galaxy S's does have arrow keys built in. Swipe your finger across from the Swype button in the bottom left corner of the keyboard to the SYM button alongside it, and you should see the cursor control screen instead. Just tap the ABC button to get back to the normal keyboard. (the other useful extra ...

They have here but doesn't give a clear reason. How can I buy Swype? / When will Swype be on the Android market? We have considered a direct-download sales model, but there are two challenges to that approach: Customer Support - Providing Swype users with the level of professional support they deserve is a priority for us. We're still a ...

So I was facing the same issue as well, and after getting no help from internet and forums, I contacted swype, here is the reply I received from them. I have not tried it yet, but I expect it to work. * This is, unfortunately, a known issue with the beta on some devices; it is particularly prevalent on the HTC Incredible, and occurs specifically ...

Actually I had the same problem as you, and I searched the help dictionary. You have to swype from "I" down to the spacebar in order for it to auto-cap. It's not as easy to find or widely known. Also as a heads-up you can do this with "a" too. The brilliant thing about it is that you only have to be close to the "I" and "a" in order for it to space/cap.

Apparently I was closing out of the install app too early. When you install Swype (the actual app, not the installer), and press done, you must WAIT about 2 to 4 seconds for a dialog box to appear to "Enable Swype". DO NOT PRESS BACK (and then try to enable Swype via the keyboards in Settings) because it will not work! Swype has to show this dialog box in ...

You must be a part of the beta program: Go to http://beta.swype.com/ Login Resend the beta email: https://beta.swype.com/android/welcome/?resend=yes On your Android phone, go to the link in the email: https://beta.swype.com/android/get/ It should start downloading the installer to setup Swype. If you still have problems, you'll need to contact their ...

Using the version of Swype that comes pre-loaded on a UK Galaxy S, I can long-press on the "Q" in the top-left of the keyboard to get a list of languages pop-up. The top two options here on my phone are "UK English" and "US English". If I switch between the two, and then swype through "colo[u]r" (obviously you have to swype across the "u" to get from the ...

So far, it seems like this dictionary has eluded people all over. There are a few things that have worked for most people as far as getting swype under control. To delete a single word, type it using Swype, highlight it (by clicking or double clicking the word), and press the Swype key (button with "info" icon) To add a word, type it very carefully letter ...

Following keyboard apps have arrow keys: Hacker's Keyboard Go Keyboard with its Pad Plugin Simply install them. Hacker's Keyboard is not liked on smartphones due to its small buttons, but as you are on tablet, I'd recommend it to you. It has all keys found on a PC's physical keyboard (including even Control, Alt etc keys). Take a look of it: Use Go ...

No. Swype, just like other similar keyboard apps use their own dictionaries. The spelling correction, and the underlying dictionary that you're referring to was added in 4.0 and none of the 3rd party keyboards apps integrate with it just yet. At this point we need to wait.

This happens when you use Link2SD or Apps2SD and move either the Swype App or the Swype installer App to your SD card. To fix it, move the installer and Swype back to the phone and reboot. I found some of this information on http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1042241 the rest I figured out by trying things.

As far as I know, Swype only comes in two sets: full (all languages) and a English/Spanish set. However, there is a hidden feature: you can swype from the Swype key to the Q key to switch between your current language and the last language you used.


4

There is no setting to do this. It would appear there is also no supported method for a keyboard developer to set where their keyboard is drawn (see KeyboardView on android.com).


4

You should be able to change the input method by long pressing on a text box > Input Method. The menu should give you a list of input methods, select the one that is not Swype.


4

Did you remember to switch to Swype from the default keyboard? Press and hold inside any text box (like Google Search, for example). A pop-up should come up with one or more options. Select the "Input method" option and then select "Swype".

Swype uses a "closed" beta system to distribute its app rather than using the Market. You can register for the beta and get a download link for their installer by simply visiting the Swype website. Disclaimer: I have no idea if the Wildfire is "officially" supported, but QVGA screen support is noted for v3.0. The forum thread you linked to in your question ...

Did you activate the Hebrew language pack in the Settings/Language & Input/Android Keyboard Settings/Input Languages? Hebrew is listed there. Check the box. I don't know if that will give support for swiping but it will at least add the language dictionary.

Recent versions of Swype (I have 3.26.92.38303) allow you to download additional languages: Select Settings → Language & inuput → Swype → Language Options → Manage Languages → Download languages and choose the language that you wish to add.
