I have a program that I use a lot to enter numbers and since you can't predict number entry, it would make entering numbers much easier if the keys were larger (similar to the default keyboard's Numpad).

Swype Numpad is 4x7
Default Numpad is 4x4
I'd prefer 3x4 if you think you can make it slick enough, but even 4x4 would be much better.

(Also note that the numpad doesn't show what longpress will input.)

(Thanks. I just reinstalled due to the 2.2.2 update and I have noticed an improvement in that the Numpad is now the default for entering numbers whereas before I would get the Symbol keypad half the time. Maybe nothing has actually changed but it is being consistent now.)

I'm assuming you are writing of the slide from Swype key to D,F, or G key number pad?

Yes. (The DFG keys being longpress for 456... I wonder why they didn't make it any of the 123 or 789 letters.)

Side note: I just learned about that way to get to the Numpad keylayout reading through thread trying to find if anyone else posted this. The other way is to go to the symbol keylayout, press the Shift key and then the "123" key.
