    Quick start: Type
    When you tap a text box, like in a message or search, you have keyboard options.

    • Choose a keyboard: In a text box, drag down the status bar and tap Select input method. Swype: Drag your finger over the letters of a word, in one continuous motion. Motorola Input: Enter letters by touching them one at a time.
    • Close the keyboard: Tap Back .

    Tips and Tricks
    • Keyboard adaptation: Your touchscreen keyboard changes, depending on whether you’re entering a text message, email, or other text.
    • Move the cursor: Tap a spot in the text to place the cursor, then drag the arrow under the cursor to move it.
    • Copy & paste: Double-tap a word to highlight it (if needed, drag the ends of the highlight). Tap icons at the top to select all, cut, copy, or paste (tap and hold the icons to show labels).
    • Your dictionary: To add a word you enter often, enter it, tap the word in the word list below the text box, then tap there again to add it to your dictionary. If Swype doesn’t know a word, tap individual letters to enter it.
    • Symbols: Tap and hold a key to enter the small number or symbol at the top of it. To enter several numbers or symbols, tap ?123 .

    Text entry settings & dictionary
    Choose your keyboard style and edit the dictionary of words your smartphone suggests:
    Find it: Tap Apps > Settings > Language & input

    • To choose your display keyboard, tap Default. Motorola input lets you enter text one letter at a time. As you type, your smartphone suggests words. If you enter a word that wasn’t one of the suggestions, tap the completed word in the suggestion bar twice to add it to your dictionary for next time. Swype™ lets you enter words with one continuous motion. Just drag your finger over the letters in the word. If Swype doesn’t know a word, you can tap letters to enter it—then, tap the word in the suggestion bar, and tap Add to dictionary for next time.
    • To change the preferences for your keyboards, tap next to a keyboard type. You can change the language, automatic punctuation, and more.
    • To add or edit the words that your smartphone suggests and recognizes, tap Personal dictionary.

    Cut, copy & paste
    Cut, copy, and past names, phone numbers, addresses, quotes, or anything else in a text box.

    1. To highlight a word, double-tap it. To highlight more words, drag the selector arrow at the edge of the highlight.
    2. Tap the icons for cut or copy. Tip: Tap and hold icons to show labels.
    3. Open the text box where you want to paste the text (even if it’s in a different app).
    4. Tap in the text box, then tap and hold to show the PASTE option. Tap PASTE to paste the text.
