    Recently I noticed that a lot of button selections on my screen are screwed up. I get symbols like %%% instead of what it's supposed to say.

    See pictures: [​IMG]


    Now, i am rooted. But I really dont think it's my rom as I hadn't noticed it before.

    I think It might be Shapewriter Keyboard... but i am not sure. Before everyone tells me to use Swype... i do:D. But i like Shapewriter because of different languages.

    Anyway, when i hold down the text field, i dont see "input method" anymore. I see this: [​IMG]
    I click on "copy all", then I get this: [​IMG].

    It's very weird. Everything works fine. Anyone have any ideas?

    I also noticed it when an app force closed. I had the same type of symbols on the force close button.

    Weirdest thing ever...

    I know nothing of the internal workings of the phone, but it looks to me like it might be displaying variable names rather than the contents of those variables. No clue what to do with it, maybe a factory reset?

    BTW I have been using Swype for a few months and just installed ShapeWriter last night. Interesting, and now I am not sure which I like better.
