Default Typing Error

Please Login to Remove!

I need some advice on this one:

Sometimes, after I have typed a bunch of text, I notice that I have mixed up some words and/or letters. How can I go back into a sentence (same way as with the arrow key on computer key board) in order to correct my typing? By using the scroll wheel I am only able to up and down at the end or beginning of sentences, but not into them.

I checked my manual and there is nothing I could find.

Thanks for your help.

Hold down the ALT key and scroll...

It's one of many excellent tricks you can do with the BB keyboard. There are some excellent Sticky Threads at the top of this board with Tips and Tricks.

hold ALT and use the trackwheel. Should give you your "arrow" action
