Useful Tips and Shortcuts

I copied this from user buyrihn over at TreoCentral:
  1. When typing, just type "u", then a space or a period or comma, and the Pre will auto-correct it to "you".
  2. If you're in a text field and the Pre auto-caps the first letter and you don't want it to be capitalized, press the delete key once, and it'll change it to lowercase without having to type the letter again.
  3. In card mode, if you press and hold on a card, it'll zoom out to a smaller view which makes it easier to see multiple cards! You can also do this by tapping anywhere on the wallpaper.
  4. You can change your launcher Apps by holding the App in the launcher bar and then dragging it up. Then you can add by doing the opposite, Hold the icon of the App you want in the launcher and pull down into the launcher
  5. If your display turns off while the keyboard is open, you can press the spacebar instead of the power button to turn it back on
  6. When typing, you can type "thru", and it will auto-correct it to "through"
  7. When typing, if you want to move the cursor, hold down the orange button and you can "slide" the cursor around
  8. Orange + Sym + R seems to soft reset the phone.
  9. After tapping a notification, you can return it to icon form by swiping down on it
  10. You can maximize a shrunken card by swiping down below the card towards the gesture area.
  11. Enter "t" for a Timed Pause in a dial string, and enter "p" for a Hard Pause in a dial string. Touch the remainder of the dial string following the word "Dial" on the screen to trigger the next set of digits to dial.
  12. Orange + sym and tap on link opens a new card when browsing online
  13. Hold the shift button down and press the back key to delete whole words at a time.
  14. You can get rid of the Alarm icon in the notification bar by restarting the phone after setting the alarm.
  15. If your keyboard is slid out, you can take a picture with the camera by pressing the spacebar
  16. Take a screenshot by pressing Orange + Shift + P. The new pic will be in your photos, under "screenshots"
  17. You can set the weather to display on your calendar (if it's sync'd with google calendar) by going to the Settings on http://calendar.google.com entering your zip code and setting the "Display weather on calendar" option.
  18. You can remove installed (downloaded) apps from the launcher by opening the launcher, going to the Launcher options, select List Apps then click on the desired app and click delete OR by holding down the orange button and tapping the app you want to delete.
Let's see some more!

late,
Coz

Re: Useful Tips and Shortcuts

when the browser is in landscape mode, you can scroll up and down using the gesture area

under screen&lock, you can turn on "switch applications" under advanced gestures and you can switch between open applications in full card mode. so you don't have to minimize to card view, you can just swipe back and forth using a full swipe in the gesture area. with advanced gestures on, back swipes are a right to left motion either stopping at the button or starting from the button. the same thing with scrolling in the browser in landscape mode.

I also noticed that when you turn off the GPS, it also saves a bit of battery juice.
