    This is a question about the new Swype beta. Everything about the newest versions of Swype Beta are amazing. Being able to change themes, and some function changes, etc... EXCEPT for the back/delete button action. This is the only thing that sucks. Where as you used to be able to HOLD the delete button and delete whole words, you can only delete one letter at a time unless you highlight the word using the swype key which can become aggravating.

    My question. How hard would it be to go in and change the action of the delete button? Would it be a simple smali edit or even a simple xml edit. Doubtful I know. Just seeing if anyone has any experience messing with swype internals and edits to see if I can get some info on this.

    Thanks for any info.

    This is something that the Swype team would have to do, unless you created an entirely new keyboard app.
