What are the most common Swype gestures?

The most common gestures are:
  • Punctuation: Swype from the comma, period, or other punctuation to the Space key instead of tapping punctuation and then the Space key.
  • The Edit Keyboard: The Edit keyboard allows the user to move the cursor within text, as well as perform other editing tasks. To get to the Edit keyboard, Swype from the Swype key to the Symbols key (=@#) on the keyboard.
  • Select All: To select all of the text you entered, just Swype from the Swype key to the 'a'.
  • Copy: To copy a word or block of text, just select the text by double-tapping on the word or do the Select-all gesture, then Swype from the Swype key to the 'c'.
  • Cut: To remove a word or block of text and store it to paste elsewhere, just select the text by double-tapping on the word or do the select-all gesture, then Swype from the Swype key to the 'x'.
  • Paste: After doing a copy or cut of your text, Swype from the Swype key to the 'v' to paste it.
  • The Number Keyboard: To quickly get to the Number keyboard, Swype from the Swype key to the number 5.
  • Hiding the Keyboard: To easily hide the keyboard, just Swype from the Swype key to the backspace key.
  • Turn off Automatic Spacing: Suppress automatic spacing before the next word by gliding from the Space key to the backspace key. This is useful when creating compound words.
  • Editing the Case of a Word: Change the case of a word after you enter it or when editing your message by tapping the word in the message and then gliding from the Swype key to the Shift key before lifting. A Word choice list with capitalization options will display, allowing you to choose lower case, Capitalized, or ALL CAPS.
  • Switching languages: To switch between the two most recent languages, Swype from the Swype-key to the key with the language initials on it.
