Sorry yes they did move everything around. You can find it under the press and hold the [?123] key to get that pop up ok. 😎

I'm on a Note 3 and near sighted, so screen real estate is more important to me than keyboard size. XCoolDroid does this for the Google keyboard (pics attached). I want it shorter, but a general height adjustment is super useful for both directions. For example, my gf is visually impaired and a taller keyboard (like the default Google keyboard size) would help her.

The images aren't loading for me on tapatalk, I'll try looking at the computer tonight.

Have you tried changing the settings in Swype to adjust the height?

I see what you saying about the height adjustment from the Google keyboard. But how can anyone Swype on the tiny keyboard. Unless you're a thumb tap input person? Idk
Anyway maybe if the dev feels it's feasible then he might be able to implement it into the module..

You can use the Xposed module "App Settings" to change the DPI of Swype to something more like ~430, but you can test around values like that. It'll make the keyboard smaller and you can combine this with the height adjustment to get a nice small keyboard. Let me take a screenshot really quick.

Huh, so I had tried that on the version of Swype that was included with my phone (SMN900) way back, and it changed the scale of the keyboard in two dimensions, and not the scale of the keyboard skin. In other words, I ended up with a keyboard that appeared the same, but with buttons that didn't line up at all with what was on the screen. Soooo, I wrote off using App Settings with Swype.

But just for the heck of it, I just tried it on the version of Swype that's in the Play store...AND IT WORKS! Brilliant! Thanks so much!
