    i upgraded to the new beta of swype and since then have found one minor issue. when i try to loop on a letter to do a double letter like the t in the word letter, i have difficulty doing so. I have to make a very large loop that only crosses over the letter, rather than looping on top of it like i used to be able to do. i'm not sure if this is just something to do with a setting that got changed or if it is a bigger issue so any help is appreciated.
    I know you guys are quick to reply so thanks in advance.

    i just got the newest beta so haven't had much time to put it thru it's paces yet. Have you tried messing with the speed/accuracy settings?

    I have noticed this too, but I didn't know if it was just because I have hugh sausage fingers.:D I have just been doing more than one loop on the letter, it helped.

    I just kind of 'squiggle' on the letter, which works OK.

    Yeah the "squiggle" technique works for me, too.
    For me I have noticed that when I double tap on a word to correct it, the word correction window doesn't pop up.
    I have to press the Swype key to make it come up or just re-swype the word.
    Oh and when I do insert the right word, the cursor is not in the right place for the next Swype. ><

    Anyone else have this, too or did I screw up a setting somewhere?

    i haven't had a chance to mess around much with the settings yet. i'm gonna work with them some and see what i can figure out that way.

    haha maker you aren't the only one with those sausage fingers. i thought swype wouldn't work for me at first because of it lol

    and i've tried the squiggle technique previous, but it just feels weird to me and before this version it wasn't as effective for me. haven't tried it much since the update though

    Reboot your phone. It'll fix that bug and the double loop will be working again.

    You have to sign up for the beta, then you can download the installer. I got mine within minutes of registering.

    Try going into settings and where it says Speed vs. Accuracy, just put the bar more towards accuracy.

    For my own issues while typing, it helped to move it toward speed. So I definitely agree that you should all try messing with this setting until out works for you.

    This new beta sucks for me! I want to go back to my old version, because the swype trail doesn't keep up with my finger speed and the letters don't loop well. All of this worked VERY well in the last version. I'll try messing around with settings as well.
