    Hi,
    For us non english speaking users we have to enter our special characters like " " etc by holding the SYM key and then cykling through a list by using the a or o.

    This is OK however I would like to be able to reorder the special characters so that the most frequently used comes first in the list and thus reducing the number of keypresses required.

    Can this be done?

    Thanks for all the other good patches.

    Someone did something similar here - http://forums.precentral.net/webos-patches/218217-patch-request-gbp-symbol-rather-than.html#post2078816

    It should be fairly simple to adapt that to what you want, I'll take a look

    Edit - er, I may be over my head here. But first of all, what language is your phone set to? That patch linked will only work with a phone set to english-great britain.

    There is a sv_se layout for the sym table in /usr/palm/frameworks/mojo/submissions/200.72/resources/sv_se/. "" and "","" is in the top left in this one, so is sym-a-sym and sym-a-a-sym. It's just the lower-case letters that is moved, though.

    I overwrote the alternatechars_table.json (or alternatechars_table_qwertz.json if you have a qwertz keyboard) in /usr/palm/frameworks/mojo/submissions/200.72/resources/en_gb/ with the sv_se one.

    You might also want to look at /etc/palm/autoreplace/en_gb/text-edit-autoreplace. I just replaced it with an empty file. Now I can type the word "i" with only one keypress! Imagine that!


    Exchange "en_gb" in the in the paths above with the language/country you have set in the "Regional settings" app. "200.72" is for webos 1.3.5. It can vary between versions.

    I have not tested the patch, but "" should really come before "". It is by far more frequently used.

    That's the most useless error message I've ever seen, I have no idea what went wrong. Does trying to install the one posted in this thread - http://forums.precentral.net/webos-patches/218217-patch-request-gbp-symbol-rather-than.html#post2078816 - give you the same error?
