    Hi all,

    I'm having problems with my typing with the multi-touch keyboard. The touch screen works perfectly fine, but it's when I go to type anything (on Facebook, Google search, or text messages).

    What's happening, is when I start typing anything out and press the Spacebar, the keyboard disappears and I have to touch the area to get the keyboard up again. And at that point, everytime I use the Spacebar, it does this all over again.

    I've switched to Swype, which works great still. But I was wondering if anyone knew why this was going on.

    I've reset my phone a couple times and I've recently upgraded my X to Gingerbread.

    Thanks!

    Go to settings> applications>manage applications>multi touch keyboard and clear data for that.

    No problem, glad its fixed.

    You just deleted the keyboard data cache. Basically giving it a fresh start.

    Thank you so much for this fix. It has been driving me crazy not being able to type. SWYPE is ok but I prefer the multi-touch Keyboard.

    This "fix" never fixed anything on mine.

    I get this same behavior in the Browser, Facebook, etc. I especially hate it when I Google something and the keyboard disappears after the first word which apparently makes Google and the browser think that's the only search term I entered. This happens using the stock keyboard and Swype but not always in every app.

    This happened in Gingerbread and still happens now that I reverted back to Froyo. It's annoying.

    My keyboard locks up and freezes whenever I touch a punctuation mark. I have to power off to get the key board to function again.

    What data do I lose/delete by clearing data in keyboard?? When I click 'clear data' as you instructed, it says: "! All of this application's data will be deleted permanently. This includes all files, settings, accounts, databases, and so on." Sounds pretty scary!
