    Default Android update messed up text entry with Swype

    This used to work perfectly, but now the cursor seems to sometimes just move to another place on the text I'm editing. Sometimes I go back and change something and it leaves the whole word out.
    Is there any way to go back to the original Android operating system, this update is rubbish?
    I have a Samsung S3 running Version 4.3
    Thanks.

    There is no way to downgrade from 4.3
    You can use other keyboard apps if you're having issues with that one. My personal favorite is Google keyboard

    Ok, but is it an Android issue or a Swype one?

    Most likely a Swype issue. SwiftKey is also a good option

    According to a Swype forum, the problem is due to a bug in the 'Smart Editor' (not so Smart Editor) that's supposed to underline words that may be miss spelt, it's not supposed to move the cursor their. Turning off this feature in the Swype settings is supposed to help.
