    I have installed Graffiti anywhere and also copied the old Graffiti 1 prc files to get Grafitti 1 (instead of Graffiti 2 which was annoying to get used to, I could never get "i" to work).

    But with Graffiti 1 , I get all the alphabets and numbers, but I can't get chars like @, -, _ etc which I use a lot (email addresses, password etc). How do I make Graffiti anywhere it go into the punctuation and extended shift mode to get these special chars?. I tried to enable "Single Tap".And this only works sometimes, most of the times it just moves the cursor to the new location (I am trying this out in memopad). I also tried making an angled line from right to left (as suggested by someone in another thread), and I only manage to get enter...but sometimes I am able to get it into punctuation without realizing it.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    use the punctuation toggle stroke - \ (starting bottom right going to top left - ypu will see a dot appear at the bottom of the screen) - then for the @ write an O, for - write a - , for the _ you will need the - then use the ALT key (that's the 0 on the keypad)

    I prefer Jot, which works well on the T600 - a bit more intuitive, once you get used to writing on the specific screen area for caps.

    Another option is to set up some of the built in shortcuts.

    I use :shortcut: A for @
    :shortcut: P for

    Etc
    Thought of the day :
    No sense being pessimistic, it probably wouldn't work anyway

    When using graffiti ,which i reallt like, I cannot consistently scribble the letters "i" or the letter "k"; No matter how i write them, they will come as "l" and "h" respectively.

    Any suggestions?

    hmorse - go to www.palmgear.com and look for graffiti anywhere - I prefer the old style of graffiti, so I also installed the Graffiti 1 libraries - search the forum and you will find instructions on how to do this

    vaaxel - same suggestion - try Graffiti 1 - the i and k in Graffiti 2 are 2-stroke characters - for "i" you would need to make the line first, lift the stylus and then make the dot over the i. Graffiti 1 is based on a single stroke and is my preference.

    It still boggles my mind why Treo users, with that gloriously easy (and quick) to use keyboard would want to pull out their styluses and go graffiti. I liked graffiti before, on my Palm IIIe and Tungsten T, but Treo 600? I don't see what's the point!.

    I refuse to fall out with you over this

    It's nice to have the choice of either, unlike some other pda/phones out there

    Chas.

    ps I like the KB for the full stop, if that helps

    Are you kidding me? With my big ol' thumbs, using the Treo keyboard is like Homer Simpson in that obesity episode, helplessly smashing down the phonepad. It drives me crazy - I don't have many complaints about my Treo, but that's a big one. (That and that FITALY isn't made for T600...)

    Is putting Graffiti 1 on your 600 really as easy as simply loading up the relevant files from an older Palm? I've been wanting to do this for months now, but am afraid I'm going to miss one little detail and screw up both versions for good.

    If you follow my links as above you will find a source of the Graffiti 1 files. There is a warning that you must not Hot Sync the files over, rather you must do it via a sd/mmc card.

    However, if you know anyone with a Tungsten T, then they can beam the 2 files straight to the Treo no problem.

    I did it this way and it worked perfectly, install Graffiti Anywhere and you have the perfect system, sorry Donald but I have big fingers as well

    Now if they could build a Treo without the KB but with the long screen out of the Tungsten T3, well that really would be a great machine.

    like a couple of you, I am relatively new to the Treo, having come over from a Tungsten W.
    Discount the argument that the Treo does not need Graffiti - it does. Anyone who grew up with the palm Vx will out pace anyone using the keyboard.
    I have explored all the graffiti packages, and Graffiti Anywhere is the best in my view, with the Graffiti 1 add on of course...
    Keep away from TealScript, I found it slowed everything down and their customer support is bad, whereas Thierry replies to a mail immediately (Thierry if you are reading, I have not forgotten promise of donation....on its way - I'll make it larger if you do an all-in-one Graffiti 1 package...!)
