Exclamation Problems with 3x4 keyboard since jellybean update

I recently downloaded the jellybean update (4.1.1). I have the old style keyboard enabled (3x4) and when i type on it it shows the first letter on that button ie if i hit 4.3.5.5.6, which used to type hello now shows gdjjm as the first available word. anyone know how to fix this? thanks

I was searching all over the settings and couldn't find it either just now. I use swype and swiftkey though so I didn't know this was a problem but I know what you're talking about because I'd seen the option there before. Anyways, did a search online and it turns out they changed the 3x4 keyboard so that now, instead of tapping the keys, you have to slide your finger across the keys. I tested it and it works. I don't know why they change things like this and they don't tell people though lol

Well there was swipe type before the update, but some words are difficult to spell via swiping, since you have to cross some letters you don't want. but before the update if the word was difficult with swipe i'd just tap the keys and it would work fine. quite frustrating

You can thank Apple for that behavior. Was in the suit against Samsung. They had to remove it.

Sorry,I have just tried it and I see what you mean, although the word "Hello" is highlighted and a press of the space bar inserts it. Phil

Couldn't figure out how to post attachments from my phone but this'll work. I didn't select anything just typed it out like I normally would of before the jellybean update.
