    I'll second (or third or fourth or wherever I fall in the order) the idea to set a trace/suggested text color.

    /signed. This is a much needed feature for this otherwise near perfect keyboard.

    I agree as well - I just installed the newest Swype version today - I had the blue color up until now, and I HATE this orange, blocky look... yuck! Bring back my blue!

    Custom color options for Swype trail

    It would be fantastic to be able to customize the Swype trail colors. The old blue color would match so much better with ICS. A minor feature, but one that would be great to have.

    If you are rooted, then you can change the trace color like so:

    Download HexEditor - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...?id=tuba.tools
    Using HexEditor open: /data/data/com.swype.android.inputmethod/lib/libSwypeCore.3.26.92.38303.so
    Search for the hex value "00a2ff" (without the quotes)
    It will find 2 entries, edit the second one with the hex color of your choice
    Remember to enter the hex color backwards per 2 characters
    Example: If you wanted to change the trace color to ICS blue, which is 33B5E5. You would change the default 00a2ff (orange) to E5 B5 33 (ICS blue)

    I've tried this, one time editing the second, the another time editing the first, and editing the two...

    But doesn't work anyone, any ideas?

    Thanks for all!

    Working fine for me. Are you clicking the save button after editing?

    Also: after editing, open up an app that uses the keyboard and switch to a different keyboard, then switch back to Swype. That's all I have to do.
