    Lost some functions of Swype from 2.2 update. Going to try to reinstall and see what happens.
    Anyone else with this issue?

    Reinstalling it will fix the issue.

    Note that in many cases, just switching the input method (long press in a text field) back to the stock keyboard, then switching back to swype will fix any issue.

    Just did and it did. Thanks. Had to remember to turn on mobile view in internet settings to redownload it. I had deleted original install download.

    I also tried switching back and forth between input methods and it didn't seem to work.

    Yeah, there seems to be a bug when you upgrade, which requires you to uninstall/reinstall it. Then there's another bug that anytime you go into recovery, it screws up the "swyping", but you can still type words.
