    That thread does not address this request. From the first post in that thread.

    - A: No. It's not possible. Read Dmitry's explanation here: Talk:Changing keyboard layout on TouchPad.
    For a brief explanation of what is in the link. The methods in that thread are only modifying code that already exists in webOS. At this point if the arrow keys are in the code nobody has found it. More likely, the arrow keys are not currently in the code, so the method in that thread could not be used to add them.

    At this point it may not be possible or could be highly complex to program the base code needed for native arrow keys throughout webOS 3.x.
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    if arrow keys work on an external keyboard... would it be possible for someone capture the request that is being sent to the device and replicate it into an onscreen macro of some sort, my thinking is simular to the way some games put a D-Pads on the screen for movement

    I was thinking similar thoughts.

    If the commands can be captured, we already know it's possible to modify the physical layout of the keyboard. This is still well beyond me though.

    There are no arrow keys on the iPad either. or on phone keyboards that I am aware of. Is there some general limitation?

    Nope, no general limitation. Some phones do have arrow keys (landscape sliders), webOS phones didn't *need* arrow keys because they implemented cursor control in another way, also not really room for the arrow keys on a portrait slider. I also believe some android keyboards have arrow keys.

    This would be very useful on the touchpad, makes navigating and correcting errors on my evo 4g very easy.

    Yes, yes, a thousand times yes. Definitely another case of 'what were they thinking'.

    +1 for arrow keys.

    The one app I have that does have arrow keys is TapNote. Both the free and the paid edition. It's on a bar just above the keyboard. Comes in very handy.

    + 1 for tapnote.
    Have you guys checked out TIDE in Preware? It's a text editor - dev environment, but he's got arrows And basic shortcuts working.. It was a little buggy when I tried it, but wanna give it another go.

    yeah- the TP is not the iPad. You touch am iPad screen and it knows where you meant to touch (maybe the misspelled word).
