? Keyboard display w/ directional arrow / buttons
While typing a text msg, I magically got the virtual keyboard to display a view with the UP, DOWN, LEFT, and RIGHT ARROWS for navigation (this is not the Number screen and Symbol screen).
Anyone know how to do this? I have no idea how I did it, and no one at the local mega Verizon store knew how to make it reappear. It's not in the manual, and I haven't been able to find it via Google. Thanks! By the way, I have the "input method" set to "Swype", but I can't figure how to display the directional arrows in "multi-touch keyboard" either.
How do you do it on the regular multi-touch virtual keyboard?
Wow! Thanks for the tip for getting arrows on the Swype keyboard! How about the regular multi-touch virtual keyboard?
Navigation / Cursor Direction keys on Swype virtual keyboard!
I wanted these so bad. I accidently pulled up the directional UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT and more keys and didn't know how I did it and couldn't repeat it. I searched online. Just not quite the right keywords I guess. I called Verizon and they didn't know. Verizon forwarded me to Motorola support and their no help support just said I couldn't. I said but I did, I saw. They just repeated there are no UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT keys on the virtual keyboard. I even asked a developer who creates custom virtual keyboards on tablets and no luck.
Yesterday I found the instructions. Trying to use the annoying "bubble"that I cannot consistently pull up and sometimes is under my finger so I cannot see it. My attempts bring up the edit menu more often. The Swype help came up as usual when I am trying to get to the spot I want. This time I clicked "More on This?" and just started reading. A few paragraphs down ... The Cursor Direction keys! They called it the Editing Keyboard.
Up, Down, Left, Right, Back Delete, Forward Delete, Back Word Delete, Tab, Enter, Page Up, Page Down, Space, Home, End, Cut, Copy, Paste, Select Text, Select All, Cursor Jump and options key for Swype settings.
Swype from the information-Swype key (i with S squiggle) to the SYM key when on ABC keyboard; Swype from the i-Swype key to ABC when on SYM keyboard and it pulls it up. So I guess I should read ALL the information under Swype. :)
Only found this on the Swype input method. Now to have some one program these navigation/direction keys in the multi touch or any other virtual keyboard developed for touch screens in Android.
I love my phone even more now!
Fun & Smiles,
