    I like WP, but waited before buying a 1520, which i just did.Can I get a keyboard that has arrow keys?

    Seems I can seldom place the cursor where I want it. Frustrating.

    No. there are no custom keyboards available.

    the cursor placement is different in 8.0 and 8.1.
    In 8.1, you move a cursor with a drag"knob"thing on it. It's meh, but it beats spam-tapping.

    The phone keyboard does not support arrow keys for scrolling, and I can understand why. It sounds like a really backwards feature when you can simply tap a word; any word, and a text cursor pops up. You can then grab the text cursor by tapping and dragging it around. If you're trying to insert the cursor in the middle of a word, it's oft easier to just tap the word (so the entire word highlights), and browse the suggestions that pop up. If none of the suggestions are correct, it'd be faster to hit backspace to delete the word, and type it out again.
    Laura Knotek and Captain_Eric like this.
