Can someone tell me how to erase a paragraph with Swype? All this backspacing is getting old.
i think the fastest way is to long press the delete key.
But don't I have to highlight the paragraph? It won't let me do that.
i don't think so. the first couple words get deleted slowly and then it speeds up.
I don't see a delete key. The closest thing is backspace.
my apologies, i meant backspace key.
Long press and then select cut all.
when i long press the backspace key using swype i don't get this option. which version of swype are you using?
If you want to select text in Swype, you probably will need to be on the editing keyboard. To get there, swipe from Swype logo key to the SYM key. In portrait mode, this should be a swipe from left to right of the two keys at the bottom left of the screen. In landscape mode, this is a swipe from the top left of the keyboard (Swype logo key) all the way to the bottom left of the keyboard (SYM key).
To select text, use the arrow keys to get to where you want to start selecting text. Then click on the Select Text key. Click on the arrow keys to start moving the cursor and it will start highlighting.
I'm not sure if this way is any faster or more efficient than just holding down the delete key, but hope this helps.
No, you don't long press the backspace key. like if ur using handcent, adress bar on browser or even like a box in the quick reply on this page you can long press and select cut all. Hope that clarifies some
thx and good to know. i figured out how to get to the select cut all screen.
Okay, long press anywhere and a menu comes up, choose to select text, which doesn't work very well....or to select all, then long press again and choose to Cut. That's all I know.:icon_ banana:
