    I posted this over on Evo thread and received great response, Just thought I'd share with Epics.

    Hey -anyone using swype, you may not realize but there is a special menu, which you won't find if you're not looking for it or have not watched the video tutorials at Swype | Text Input for Screens

    The special menu includes arrows, copy all, delete select and many more helpful keys. Access it by swyping from the Swype Key (Bottom Left) to the "SYM" key right next to it. To get back to regular keyboard, just press the ABC key.

    Oh, while you're on the abc (default view) keyboard, swype from SYM key to 5/F key, nice little numeric layout for you.

    Yup - it's one of the totally cool, totally hidden Swype features...much like the secondary numerical keypad that you get by holding the Sym key when on the normal numerical keypad.

    You just made my keyboard even more useless.

    Really nice! Just one question... What does the Cursor Jump button do?

    Thanks!

  10. When you select "Cursor Jump" and then an arrow direction, it'll jump to the beginning or the end. It works like the "home" or "end" keys on a computer keyboard.
