    We can do that using the trace keyboard. The default for this is off on the HTC One M8, but it's very useful. It helps us to write very quickly. If you would like to see a video tutorial on how to set up the trace keyboard, then you can do that on our website. Please do, and we'll guide you through that process.

    After we have written something, to add a full stop, double tap the space bar.
