    Howdy everyone, just popping in to ask a quick question about Swype. I was with family today at the T-Mobile store (They're all upgrading to the Samsung Vibrant today) and I was giving them all an intro to Swype on the demo. Now when I was doing this I noticed that Swype on the Vibrant had a feature I don't seem to have on my EVO.

    Basically while you're swyping, say you swype a word wrong right? On the Vibrant you double tap the incorrect word and it brings up a correct suggestion list. My Swype doesn't do this. Anybody know if this is an option somewhere, or what I'm missing here?

    Thanks!



    (Sorry if that was a bit long-winded :D)

    We have to double tap the word to highlight, then press the little squiggly swipe button and it does the same thing.

    Yup, was just going to post that, you don't even have to double tap it. Just tap it once so the cursor is on the word you want to correct.

    Uhh, strange. On my swype, I can doubletap on the wrong word, and a list of suggestions DOES appear. Evo, using swype beta.

    -edit-
    my swype version is 1.56.30.7625.t100. You can get to the version by clicking on the swype button on the keyboard, pressing the "Options" button, and scrolling to the bottom.

    Figured it out. If I type with the phone in landscape mode, the feature works. If I type in portrait, it doesn't. Probably a bug.
