    You posted this thread by linking them or by copy/pasting the whole thing there? What do you mean it's not getting any attention?

    I thank you for your findings!

    This should not be a problem when you double tap the textbox itself. The browser will resize itself to the width of the textbox. But I do agree, it should auto-center on the typing although I wonder how they can implement that allowing a smooth experience for the user.

    Not only in Doc View but also PDF View, except the only difference is that it goes back to the main PDF View screen whereas Doc View leaves you with that blank screen. Both PDF View and Doc View should just automatically bring out card view.

    I mean that I posted the link to this thread on the official Palm forums, specifically stating what was going on, and nobody has replied yet. That's fine though, I wasn't expecting anybody to read all that anyway. Definitely gonna email it to customer support, I'm gonna make absolutely sure these efforts don't go to waste.

    Let's just hope they're paying attention.

    There seems to be a memory leak in the Web browser. One example is that on Facebook I play the "Mafia Wars" game and it works well in the Pre's browser, but sometimes it will suddenly put a large loading symbol over the page and then reload the page (if I cancel the reload, I won't be able to click on any links on the page). When it reloads, all the images are messed up - they are not the images that belong in each space, but images from other pages I've previously viewed (i.e. friends' Facebook profile images) and if the image area is larger than the image it has substituted, it will just repeat the edges for the remaining size - very strange-looking! It will also give me the message that I have too many cards open and won't let me open any more cards.

    It has done this when I am browsing some random pages that are just regular Web pages (not intense like the game page), too. Closing the browser app lets me open new cards and such, but it is all the quicker to reach the out-of-memory stage when I reopen the browser. Sometimes resetting the phone helps. And sometimes I can use even Mafia Wars with zero memory problems, but other times it is horrible and happens every other page change.

    I had a strange thing happen recently. Yesterday I was sent a text message with an image attached, I didn't get the message until I restarted my phone this morning.

    I'm not sure if anyone else has had this problem.

    i think that the launcher pages should reset to the top of the page everytime you close it

    Palm definitely needs to fix this.

    Sometimes I have the same problem with this that teledon and Kai described and sometimes it works as chemengr described. Who knows why it works once and not another time? Frustrating.

    I'm also frustrated that I can't copy text from an email that I receive. I have tried to "forward" the email so that I can copy text from it and paste it elsewhere, followed by deleting the "forwarded" email. It just does not work, the only text I can highlight to copy is text I type above the forwarded email.

    I have not had a chance to read through all of the pages here. But WTF is up with the notification sounds?

    I have only had my pre for a few days now. And have lost the notification sounds for emails and texts twice. The second time, no sounds worked (i.e. incoming calls...). I have restarted the phone using the Device Info icon each time and it restores the sounds after it starts up again.

    I have also noticed that there is a conflict with the "System Sounds." The first time I wasn't able to hear the sounds for texts and new mail was when I had that turned off. Turning it on helped and brought those sounds back. But I didn't want to hear the "swoosh" sound. So I turned it off and restarted. It worked as it should for a little bit. Then it lost all sounds. Restarting brought them back again.

    Whatever the case...there is a SNAFU bug with the sounds.

    ++ Also, is there any way to make the screen stay on longer when you get a notification when your phone is in standby? I will get a text or mail message, it will flash the notification up for a split second and then it turns the screen off. It would be nice to actually be able to see what the message is before it turns off again. Instead, I have to hit the power button and unlock then see the message after tapping the bottom.

    A setting to keep notification up on new message in standby for 10 seconds would be really nice. I don't even have to unlock to read it. I just want to know the type (email/text, voicemail, etc...). Then either unlock to retrieve it...or just let it go back to sleep.

    Other than these few nuisances, I love the pre and the mogul can kiss my A$$

    I admittedly did not search through 36 pages, but if you close the slider too fast/hard, the Pre shuts down and needs a boot.

    That is a defect. I had to exchange mine for another one that works perfectly.

    1) when browsing the web in landscape and a new browser page opens up...it's in portrait... quickly flipping from portrait to landscape puts it in landscape, but it's silly....lol

    2) my mp4 sometimes play and sometimes i get 'unable to play file' error message...not sure why... the software is quirky...

    If you mean the problem that happens with some e-mails where the reply screen is squeezed together and sometimes doesn't even show the send button? Yes! Just close the reply card (push the card off the home screen to get rid of it), which automatically saves the reply as a draft. Then, go into that e-mail account's Drafts folder and open the reply up. The formatting is normal and the send button is back!

    I discovered this by mistake once, as I have one friend where this problem happens when I reply to her e-mails. I also can't see her in-line graphics. She uses a certain e-mail program (I forget which one now, but it is one that allows her to easily add graphics and such) that I believe is the culprit, since nobody else's e-mails have this issue.

    Are you trying to swipe over the actual words you wish to copy? Or just anywhere in the screen? It works much better if you swipe anywhere on the screen - and you can see where you are highlighting a lot better that way, too. (I used to think you had to do it the former way, too, until I read on these boards that you can do it the latter way. Ever since then, it works much better!)

    I think I found a bug...

    I'm listening to kanye west's album "808's & Heartbreak" today when I noticed that in the title bar in the music app (where it gives you the option to choose between track view and album art view).. it says "808's & Heartbreak".

    it doesn't really distract from the music experience.. but its a bug i guess. It only says the "&" in the title bar. Everywhere else it gives the correct "&" symbol.

    No really, quite frankly this is a fruitless endeavor unless somebody from Palm actually sees this list. I've tried twice - once posting it on their official forums (nobody gave a ****) and once emailing links to the support people (no response).

    Anyone else?

    It has to do with the way the Pre is interpreting your selection gesture. If you aren't precise enough, the Pre considers that you are trying to also select the line above or below. If your on the last line of a text block and you swipe too far downward vertically, the Pre thinks your trying to select the line below too, but no line below exists, so it places your cursor back at the end of the line (where you probably started the text selection at). Try it on an editable text area. Place your cursor at the end of the text block, select leftward, and slope downward.

    I think the Pre should give a little more tolerance to upward test selevtion gestures. If I want to select the line above, require that I swipe at least a half inch vertically, rather than a quarter inch, for example. This is a setting that is hard to mail down and would vary widely as a preference from person to person.
