    Loved ShapeWriter on my incredible. Too bad it was sold to nuance and shelved. I just dowloaded and installed apk to my rezound but the keyboard is small
    I wish this was still supported. Any idea to make the keyboard bigger?

    Could the reason for Shapewriter being so small on the S3 due to the limitations of the coding with regards to screen size/resolution(be it they didn't set the values past a certain size, etc)? Im no computer programmer nor am i computer savvy but maybe somebody with technical expertise could chime in cause im kind of pulling these ideas out my ass. :)

    We don't have the codes to make it bigger. Will have to try and contact the developer or re-up a thread on XDA and see what other developers can do.
    Quite possibly. How's it working for you so far? Liking it?

    So far so good. It's like Swype and Swiftkey had a child. I like the predictive text showing up when I "swype". Too bad it doesn't do this as you manually type(at least i don't remember it doing so). Took some getting use to but i like it so far and ive fully abandoned Swype(wonder if Swype on the S3 is better).
    I do have a question though. I was trying to understand the cut, copy, and other commands but couldn't get it to work. Tried to go on youtube to see some tutorials but didn't see it addressed on there. Any idea how to do this?

    Told you this keyboard would be better, haha! Place your finger on the little Shapewriter symbol at the bottom of the keyboard, and from there, just hit the C letter, then go to the U, then the T. That'll be the cut command, and so on for other commands. You're basically starting out with the Shapewriter symbol, then you spell out the command you want it to do.

    You're also able to play a video game with this keyboard by typing in it's command. Pretty neat considering it kills time whenever you're bored :D

    Yeah i did that but nothing was cut or give me the option to cut. I mean i see that it said cut in the little shapewritter bar but nothing afterwards. I might post some pics of what im trying to accomplish later on.

    Be sure to highlight the text of what you're trying to cut. Otherwise, it won't cut anything ;)
