    I just installed a freeware hack "Treo Keyboard Utils". This lets your keyboard have full cursor functioning by holding the MENU key and pressing a user-defined letter.

    It also lets you assign next field/previous field - something I sorely missed going from graffiti to keyboard.

    I tried that a while back, and just couldn't understand this functionality. Two things: 1) pressing the menu button pulls down a menu, and 2) you have to try to choose a set of letters that, after you press the menu button, aren't assigned to a menu command. Am I missing something?

    I like switcheroo very much, which has related functionality -- it lets you assign [blue] space letter to an application for each letter (e.g., I start Handy Shopper by pushing blue and space simultaneously, then pushing h).

    I also use Switcheroo, but wouldn't really say it has reelated functionality to this piece of software. Switcheroo is a launcher; this give you a cursor and field-selection. Or am I misunderstanding the description?

    You're right -- I misunderstood what the keyboard program does.

    Very cool. This is one of my biggest pet peeves about my Treo 270. To be able to use next field/previous field is awesome. Now to see how this works...

    P.S. This hack works as advertised. I wonder if there is a way to map the jog dial and/or the up/down arrows to do the same thing (eliminating the need for 2 keypresses). Still VERY cool.

    To get the menu you press and release the MENU key, then press the menu letter - to use the cursor hack you press and HOLD the MENU key while pressing the key to move the cursor. This lets you assign a cursor key to a menu function.

    I just tried it and it's very nice. The cursor keys have a very natural like the cursor keys on a desktop keyboard. While Option+Up Arrow allows you to move the cursor around, it only works for left right motion while TKU gives me up, down, left and right motion like a "real" keyboard.

    There is a new version of Treo Keyboard Utils - this lets you select a block of text by using MENU+Space to mark the start of the block, move to the end of the block and press MENU+Space again, and the block is highlighted!
