Great shortcut for periods and commas!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Apologies if this is has been posted previously, but found it so useful think it warrants repeating!

Basically, you can type a period with ease if you simply press the .?123 key, then keep your finger on the screen and just slide it up and over a bit to the period when the numeric keypad appears. Amazingly, this key reacts as soon as your finger touches it (no lifting required), and the numeric keypad will automatically disappear when it does, leaving you right back where you started with the normal keyboard activeand with a period in your document! And instead of multiple taps, it took but one.

It works for the comma as well, you just change the angle of the "slide".

Very nice. Thanks.

Too bad you can't do something like a double space to make a period.
