    Hi Everyone,

    I'm sure that there has to be a thread about this somewhere, but I've looked quite a bit and can't seem to find one.

    Before my Dell Streak (now running 2.1, using the the Swype keyboard), I had an iPhone. I definitely don't miss much about it, but one thing that was nice was, when scrolling through large amounts of text, a circle would appear that looked something like a magnifying glass and I would have the ability to pinpoint exactly where I wanted to place my cursor when editing text.

    With my current setup, I have trouble landing the cursor accurately when I touch in a large body of text. I'd even settle for arrow, like on a regular keyboard. Ideally, I am looking to accomplish this while keeping Swype functionality.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Doesn't the Opera browser have a cursor?

    This isn't exactly what you are looking for, but on the Swype keyboard, if you swype from the swype key to the "SYM" key, you get a keyboard with arrows in all directions that helps with this.
