Space bar on droid X is to narrow, i keep putting . between each word rather than a space. Any way to customize the keyboard to widen the space bar?
Try out the gimpsta customized HTC IME keyboard. I'm loving it. I originally had it on my MOTO Droid. Best out in my opinion.

Coming from a phone that always had a physical qwerty keyboard, I am realizing how much slower I have to type to make sure my fingers hit the right keys... I am slowly increasing speed, but its definitely been an adjustment! I came to the DX from the Devour and I loved that physical keyboard. Any other keyboard suggestions would be greatly appreciated here too, any customization and such. I do have to turn the phone to the landscape position to really fly across the keys otherwise my bigger fingers hit wrong buttons.
Have you guys ever recalibrated the keyboard?? Maybe the stock calibration values just don't work well for you?
I've actually played around with adding an option to the skin kitchen for a bigger space bar but got put on the back burner to other things as it just simply doesn't happen to me enough to bother. Maybe i'll dig thru my notes and try to see how far I got with that option (don't remember, to be honest ha).
Other settings in htc_ime mod that I find improve my speed:
Custom popup delay set to 250ms. this is the delay of how long you have to hold a button to get the secondary character (or characters) to display. 250 ms is just fast enough that it's so much quicker to long press a button then to switch keyboard pages (#12 button, abc button, whatever) to get it's secondary character (number, symbols, etc).
Disabled space after period (you can still double tap space to insert period then space after a word and less time deleting a space in the cases you dont want one after the .)
Swipe up for shift, swipe left for delete last word, and swipe right to move to end of next word.
Your mileage may vary, but majority of the time I can type as fast on this as I ever could on any of my blackberries or other phones with physical qwerty's (which is pretty fast haha). Hardest thing is to retrain your self not to hit backspace but just keep going and let the autocorrect fix it.
