Thread: Capitalization Gesture

  1. #1

    Capitalization Gesture

    I can't get the capitalization gesture to work to capitalize letters in the middle of a sentence. By default it works on the first word of the sentence.

    Hi djohnson1979,

    Are these the same steps you are following?

    "Capitalize a letter by gliding your finger above the keyboard and without lifting, gliding your finger back to the next letter of the word."

    Make sure that when you are swyping, you trace ABOVE the keyboard and then come back down.

    When I try from above the keyboard, the keyboard "minimizes" and disappears. I have to force close whichever application I try it in and re-open to get the keyboard back. I'm using the latest patch of Swype.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    Make sure that you start ON the keyboard, and begin to Swype your word, THEN go above the keyboard and back down to complete the word. It's a bit unusual, if you aren't use to it, but try to follow this example:

    1. Enter a text field
    2. Start to Swype the word "awesome" - trace from a to w to e to s (so that you've covered "awes"
    3. From the "s" trace above the keyboard (even above the Word Choice List)
    4. Come back down from above the keyboard to the letter "o"
    5. Swype the rest of the word (from m to e)

    You should see "aweSome" in the text field. Also make sure that you are using one continuous motion, and not stopping at any point.

    Hope that clears things up!

    That works perfect. Is there any way to swype a capital letter at the beginning of a word without hitting the caps lock button first?

    Nevermind. Answered my own question.

    Still doesn't work

    I've been using Swype for years on android. Swyping this post i attempted to capitalize the following words: doesn't, work, android, gmail, safari. Same problem in gmail. I am touching the first letter, running my finger well above the entire keyboard; above the keys, word suggestions and the line with the left and right curved arrows.

    "New iPad" (ipad 3), iOS 9.2 (13C75), safari (version unavailable), gmail 4.3.

    They took capitalization out of the iOS version because people kept getting capital letters in the middle of words.

    Swyped from my LG G4 with Tapatalk 4.5.2
