    Just recently, my Nexus 7 decided to go back to the Google keyboard as the default. Swype is still installed, I can open it and change the settings, but it is not given as an option when in a text input field. I've disabled the Google keyboard, and after doing so, I only have voice input options when in text input fields. I can't seem to find a way to set Swype as the default keyboard.

    Can anyone help?
