    When I first started to use the slide down keyboard I would sometime have the cursor select and over write other words. Other times it would just jump to a different location in the message. After reading the manual, I found found that it was a cursor position feature of the keyboard. From the manual pp. 29:

    "To insert the cursor into a block of text, double-tap the slider keyboard. To move the cursor to a specific location in the text field, on the keyboard, slide your finger left, right, up, or down."

    So I was inadvertently double tapping the keyboard to enter in to this cursor positioning mode. When this feature is enable a arrow with a vertical bar is displayed in the notification area at the top of the screen. To disable exit this this mode, simply double tap the keyboard.

    I'm finding this very useful. Now if only we could get a pointer on the screen to select links and move between text fields without screen taps.
