    I have the official beta of Swype, and have been trying to delete a word from the dictionary with no success. In the manual it says to select the word you want to delete, short-tap the Swype key, and you'll be presented with a dialog asking if you want to delete the word. Whenever I short-tap the Swype key, I get the tutorial prompt.

    Anyone have any luck doing this?

    Yup, word is highlighted.

    I thought I remembered being able to do this previously, but that was with the unofficial beta.

    I wasn't able to delete the word either by highlighting and hitting the Swype button.

    You could always go into the User Dictionary directly and delete the word (under Language and Keyboard), unless you are simply trying to do it via Swype.

    Okay, I got it to work. I appears the Swype dictionary and the Swype dictionary store differently.

    I highlighted the word by double-tapping, and after I tapped on the Swype button the option to delete it from the Swype dictionary was given.

    Not sure I followed that... :D

    Hmmm... I tried this and nada. It took me forever to get the word to highlight by double-tapping it. And when it did and I hit the Swype key, I got the freaking tutorial screen again.

    You can only delete words that YOU have added. Not words that are alreday stored in SWYPES dictionery.
    Sucks, but no way to do it at the moment.

    I don't know if you've done this already, but unchecking Word Prediction in the Swype settings has saved me untold time and frustration. You will still get the word tips, but you will no longer get unwanted word predictions like 10q every time you type a 1.

    I just got my droid last week and messing around with all the apps..
    I tried shapewriter and downloaded the .5612.apk version of the swype beta..
    looking at the swype site it looks like they shut down the beta.. what is the latest or best version of swype for the droid..

    also.. has anyone had any issues with their case preventing some swype functions..
    seems that the "hold delete" and delete a whole word function is hit and miss.. I just got a case and just noticed it today.. I can delete letter by letter but when I hold the key it just does nothign and then when I release I get a bink bink noise.. the swype key seems to not work as well either..

    also, somehow while hitting the delete key my swype change from English to Spanish.. no idea how that happened.

    took the case that goes on the screen part off and it seems to work.. but still only sometimes..

    .5612 is the latest version of Swype, and it is the version customized for the Droid.

    .5652 t100 is the latest version - but it doesn't play nicely with alternate ROMs.

    .5612 is an older version that did not have the DRM-like protection that blocks it from being used on any phone running Android.

    my dictionary changed on me.... i couldnt understand why the swype words were all wrong all the time... i couldnt recognize some of hte words, and it turns out the dictionary was changed to SPANISH...

    I know a little spanish, but didnt recognize the words that were being suggested...
    except problem/problema

    i tried for ten minutes on trying to get swype to enter problem, and not problema... i kept on deleting the A, and it kept coming back...

    not sure how it changed he dictionary...
