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 ...

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.

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.

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 ...

Following keyboard apps have arrow keys: Hacker's Keyboard Go Keyboard with its Pad Plugin Simply install them.

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 ...

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.

This may be a symptom of the Swype application data becoming corrupted following a hardware upgrade. To resolve this, go into Settings > Manage Applications > All > Swype and clear the application data. Then force the Swype service to restart.

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.

Swype uses a separate dictionary. You can access the settings for both from within the system settings: From the homescreen, open settings → language & keyboard for Swype continue: Swype → Personal dictionary for the default keyboard: My dictionary There you can edit/add/remove words from your user dictionary.

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

Enter the message application, click the menu button and enter Settings, select "Text input mode" and change the option from Automatic to GSM Alphabet. When you type in the message it appears as special characters but when the message is sent it is automatically converted to normal text.

Have you tried downloading a new language? Go to Swype's settings in Language and input (or keyboard settings). Then, go to Languages > Download languages. You should see Francais (AZERTY).

I am having this same problem on my HTC thunderbolt. The way to fix it is to go into settings - applications and then stop the swype application. After you can set your keyboard to swype again and it will work. There is probably a bug in the newest version.

That's unfortunately not possible, Swype would need to provide a setting for this, which they don't. You might have more luck with third-party-messaging apps, but I doubt it, as this is a contextual feature that pops up whenever it makes sense for smileys to be inserted.

Have you tried http://beta.swype.com/ ? You need to register with an email address to get a link to download the Swype installer.

I just figured it out while trying all possible Gboard settings. Turns out that "block offensive words" was activated for some reason, and apparently the word "hon" is considered offensive in some places. I had no idea it was an offensive word, and either way I'd have thought Gboard was clever enough not to block english offensive words when I'm in "swedish ...

You can tap for those words, Swype's autocompletion will use your personal dictionary to finish the rest.

With Version 1.3, this is now an option in Swype. You have to log in with your credentials (I think you probably registered when you downloaded the beta installer). It gives you the option to backup and sync your dictionary across other devices using Swype. http://www.swype.com/about/specifications/

In Motorola Atrix 2, when swype keyboards freezes, I simply keep pressing on the keyboard area, so a popup notice tells the aplication will force closure. That is a quick way to make the keyboard restart and work.

Have you checked in Settings -> Language and keyboard? Deselecting it from here should help.
