    Hello

    This might seem an odd question but I can't find information to answer it.


    When typing a message in the HTC Desire is there a way of moving the cursor to a place in the written message using some keyboard cursor keys? If so where are they hidden?

    At the moment I seem to be only able to do this using the trackball or by trying to guess and clicking in the message. Both methods suck!

    There has to be some left right cursor keys surely -- doesn't there??:confused:


    I love my phone but this bugs me:cool:

    If there is some option I am missing please let me know..

    thanks.

    Tap the spot on the message you want to edit then use the trackpad to fine tune. Works very well for me.

    Using quick scrolls on the trackpad moves it less than slow scrolls is the best advice I read on here.

    I had an app once that turned the volume up / down keys into scroll left / right keys when the keyboard was being displayed. Worked very well indeed and since my 2.2 update I have been meaning to re-install.

    just had a quick search, couldnt find it, not got time now though but felt morally obliged to at least mention this solution to your problem as it was such a good one.

    Cheers
