Samsung Galaxy S :: Get Rid Of Swype Keyboard After I Finished Typing?
Oct 8, 2010
I love using swype: quick and efficient. But in some programs I use (e.g. Tasker / Jotro) the swype keyboard pops up when I click a text field (as it should), but if I'm done, sometimes it shows a "done" button on the swype keyboard itself (and when I click on that, the swype keyboard dissappears), but sometimes, there isn't a done key on the keyboard (only an enter key which gives a new line in the text field I'm editing) and I can't scroll in the program to the save/done button in the program itself to save what I just typed. Does someone know whether there is a quick way to get rid of the Swype keyboard after I finished typing?
My (frustrating workaround) is to go to Swype options, press back, and the swype keyboard is gone.
Suddenly the sound doesn't work for my text when I type or swype. I've turned on ALL sounds possible. (It still vibrates.) I can hear all the other sound effects and can hear the typing if I switch to Android Keyboard. But I like Swype!
Is anyone else finding that their keyboard lags when typing moderately quickly? I am using the Android keyboard and for the life of me I can not type "might" without it hiccuping and only getting "miht", "miht", "miht".
I've turned off the suggestion bar, auto-completion, and system sound...but still the keyboard is awful. It has been the same way with both of the Captivates that I've had.
It happened 2 times already. I open the slide out keyboard and start typing an email, some letters (like C) does not type so I try a few times clicking the key and it types. then when I hit A the entire text is highlighted and the next character that I type replaces the highlighted text. You can imagine how annoying this can be. I thought I must have done something wrong and examined that the fn key was not pressed (cycled through it by pressing fn 3 times). No luck. I tried the same thing in 5 min and it all worked fine. I am baffled.
If I make a spelling error when typing a text but dont notice it until the text is finished it can be quite difficult to correct. Its a case of trying to insert the cursor by the error and then backspacing. This can be quite tricky. Or is there another way to do it? On my laptop there are directional arrows which allow me to take the cursor back through the text without deleting letters on the way. Is there an equivalent on the phone keypad?
Was holding my phone a weird way, hit some buttons by accident and there were weird keys on there. Arrows, cut, copy, paste buttons. Don't know how I got there, would like to know how to get back though.
Guys I found an awsome keyboard that I believe to be better than Swype.It's called ShapeWriter keyboard, let me know what you guys think.I thought I had found a new keyboard but apparently its been out for awhile! Although it has it advantages and disadvatages over swype, I still like it! Sorry for posting this in the "root" forum, lol I forgot about the regular forum!
For a while now since i got the vibrant, i've been using swype.IMHO This is one of the best keyboards out there. but there's a flaw in the keyboard,it's annoying because i always do it! And what i was wondering, is if we can disable it, or delete it all together. In swype keyboard, on the bottom right hand corner, theres a button for the Smiley face. Which is also under the most used backspace key. So you know, whenever i'm trying to delete some text, instead of deleting text, i get a bunch of ":-)" it is extremely annoying. I never used this key on purpose, and what i was wondering is that if we could some how delete that smiley button .
After upgrading to Froyo 2.2, Swype started to behave strangely. I noticed that with Froyo 2.2, Swype also got a newer version. However, the performance is much worst when compared to the previous version. Here is the summary of the issues which i noticed:
1. Incorrect word recognition. 30%-40% increase in incorrect recognition 2. Much higher CPU usage (hence battery drain) 3. Very bad performance in portrait mode as compared to landscape mode
I have a Huawei Honor U8860, which is rooted and running Miui 3.1.11. I experience an annoying problem with the keyboard. Here is what happens.
Any time I am entering text, whether i'm texting, facebooking, emailing, navigating, googling, etc, the standard android keyboard disappears while i'm typing. It's very random and not consistent. Sometimes I can type normal and sometimes only 10secs before it happens. Then I'll have to wait to get the keyboard reappear. After the keyboard reappears it may stay up for 10 sec before it disappear again.
I have tried installing Touchpal Keyboard. It works fine in the beginning, but after a while the problem come back and the keyboard disappears.
The Swype Keyboard on my wife's Captivate is not working correctly. The SYM button and the one to the left of it are blanked out - meaning they are just black boxes and clicking/pressing them does nothing. She has had to switch to the default keyboard and she hates it.Any idea what is going on and how to fix this?
So is there an easy way to type the word "I'll". I have to upper case the letters then type "I", then switch to the symbols and type ', then back to the letters to type "ll". This just seems way to much for a little word. My BB Tour would recognize so much easier. If there is no easy way to type it, wonder if Froyo will fix it.
Lately I've been feeling like I'm typing too fast for my keyboard and I'm missing characters all the time. I'm wondering if the keyboard I'm using is the issue or is it just the way the Evo is. I'm using the keyboard that comes with Warm 2.2. Is there a setting I can change that would allow me to type faster (like, is this a software problem) or is this simply a limitation on the Evo's on screen kb?
Whenever I am typing while on my browser (Dolphin HD), how do I make the keyboard disappear? Sometimes it does not do it on it's own and I'm having to view things while the keyboard is there. If I hit the "back" button on the bottom of the EVO, it takes me to the previous page and if I hold the "menu" button down it pulls up the browser's menu. What am I doing wrong if anything?
1 thing that is very annoying is when I type a text in landscape, to send the text I have to minimize the keyboard. is there a simpler way to send them? Found a fix: Main menu>add>widgets>settings>mobile
The better keyboard application is better than the stock keyboard in almost every way. But there is one big problem with it that I've found, and that's that it has trouble registering two nearby keys tapped in rapid succession, often registering neither of them. If I try and type "that" with two fingers, I'll often just get "th"-- it interprets left thumb pressing "a" and right thumb pressing "t" as... nothing, I guess.
when i turn my phone horizontally the keyboard comes up with no problem, then when i begin to type on it the letters/words do not show up until i turn it back vertically and then i am able to read what i wrote. any ideas why this might be happening...or how to fix it? its a new phone i just got for christmas, and the horizontal keyboard only stopped working a few days ago.
I am not sure if this is a handset problem or a software problem. When i am typing the keys almost seem to stick, i no tht is not possible as iot is a virtual keyboard, but i think you get the jist of what i am trying to say. Is there anyway of correcting that or is there a better like for like keyboard out there that i can use.
As I mentioned, my keyboard seems to lag when typing online. Right now I am posting this thread from my Incredible, and it is definitely laggy? In all other text applications like gmail, etc. the keyboard is lightning fast. Anyone else notice this on your Incredible?
I was extremely excited to get my Froyo upgrade, because our work website to download sales numbers, etc uses Flash (another problem in itself). The web page loads to the login, and I can place the cursor into the user name field but no keyboard pops up to enter data into. Any ideas?
While I -am- enjoying it to a degree, I am getting bloody tired of needing an apostrophe, clicking the "12#" button, and having it put an automatic SPACE as soon as I push it, which requires me to backspace, then add apostrophe, then back out to the letters. I'm a gal who can type pretty damn fast, even on a phone, so this is really ticking me off since I'll look up several lines later and see a catastrophe of misplaced spaces in my words before apostrophe. How do I make it stop this entirely frustrating behavior?
Sorry if this has already been said, but while I was typing on the keyboard I noticed something cool. If you type a text or sentence and you look back and notice that a word you tried to type got switched to a different word because of a missed key or just because of the predictive text, instead of moving the cursor back and erasing, you can just click on that word. This brings up the original suggestions along with what you actually typed even if you've moved past this word. Maybe the original Droid had this? I came from an HTC Droid Eris.
This was asked in the Droid forum, but I suppose people without physical kb don't go there so I might ask this here as well.. Does anyone know an app which lets you test your typing speed with the on screen keyboard?
Is there a way for me to shrink the size of the keyboard that appears when I'm typing text? Often, I'll be composing a message to a board like this one, and the text I'm typing will be invisible because the keyboard is taking up over half the screen.
Is it common that the default keyboard and input method is a bit slow and lags pretty heavy behind typing? It seems like the Eris can't keep up w my typing and it causes delays and issues when typing messages, etc. Not sure if its the hepatic feedback or the correcting, but its frustrating at times. Apart from that, I like the keyboard and the predictive text works well.
