'R' for reply shortcut missing in SMS

[ Edited ]

Just got the new Bold 9700, OS v5.0.0.344 with the threaded SMS view. The shortcut 'R' for replying to a message has gone. Does anyone know if this is a permanent feature and part of the new threaded view? The old SMS view allowed 'R' for reply and 'F' for forward - a very handy and quick shortcut.

The manual says that depending on the typing input that is selected some shortcuts may not be available.  You may check/change the input and see if that changes anything.

Re: 'R' for reply shortcut missing in SMS

I just got the 9700 as well (from 8320) and if you go into SMS Inbox, it still works like your used to, but what seems to be happening is that they are using a "chat style" way of texting in the main SMS/MMS box.  Instead of hitting R now, you just hit the trackpad (aka "enter") and it opens the chat and your instantly ready to start typing.  So basically the Trackpad has replaced the "R" shortcut.  Its different and I really liked the previous way things went but I'm sure in the future I'll learn to love this style.  I just hope they fix the "number showing instead of the name" bug.

Re: 'R' for reply shortcut missing in SMS

If you're cursor is sitting in the text field to write a reply, there's no need to press 'R', just start typing. However, if you move your cursor up into the message thread, the words, "Press R to Reply" will appear in the text area below.
