    Suretype

    Advertisement



    I just picked up a Pearl thinking it'd be a small upgrade from my 8700c. Is it just me or does Suretype suck? I feel like the simplest words never come up for example i type in for "our" the first choice that comes up is "oue".

    Is there a setting I can change to make this work better or what? I have had it for a week now and it doesn't seem to be getting better.

    Never mind. After looking at the input language and seeing it was Afrikaans I now know why this past week has been frustrating the hell out of the me.

    the first choice is 'our' by default. if it has become 'oue' it means it added to your custom word list from seeing it pop up too often or it being inputed several times. click 'options', 'custom wordlist' and then press menu button and choose 'Clear Custom Wordlist'.

    it will reset your pearl back to the basic suretype. the custom wordlist adds to match your typing needs. the good thing about that is it starts choosing the word you want first, the bad thing is for poor spellers it will spell the word wrong since it was taught the wrong spelling.

    -edit-

    LOL @ the reason. that's a good story.

    I think you just need to get used to it. Once you get used to it you don't even really notice anything.

    Yeah, at first I was a little unsure of how well it would work. But, now I'm loving the suretype. The button size doesn't even bother me either.
