    I don't know if this will help you, but for the next day or two Office Suite Pro is on sale for 25 cents as part of the 25 billion downloads celebration from Google. This is a steal as it is usually over $10. Head over to the Play Store if you are interested.

On my Galaxy Nexus I use swype in Office Suite Pro spreadsheets and it appears that everything about the input in the spreadsheet relates back to my swype settings, including my personal dictionary.

    Another thing I noticed is that there doesn't seem to be a way to change fonts, say from Ariel to Tahoma, etc.
    But I agree that it's an excellent program.
