    is there a way to scroll the cursor in a large text field (web browser) on the touchpad, if you do not have a bluetooth keyboard? Has anyone found any tricks on how to do this?

    Apparently there's no scroll bars either and I recall this issue with webos 1.4.5 also many moons ago.

    Thanks!

    Try this; Double click on the text field. The screen should zoom in, so the text field fills the entire screen. Once that happens you should be able to swipe up and down to scroll through the text field.

    google docs just got a new look with a scrollbar--gdocs now works with the TP!

    This doesn't work in App element text boxes.
    Palm V → TX → Centro → HTC Legend → TouchPad/Pre 3(UK) → HTC One X → Nexus 4/iPad Mini → Pre 3/TouchPad Go
