    I find that cursor control is not precise enough. By the time it starts responding to finger movement the cursor is far beyond the last few words where a correction is most likely needed. Possibly due to use on a smaller device on which it seems to move too fast/far.
    I've been using SwiftKey with the arrows for years so my muscle memory is permanently habituated ;-)
    So please MS, for us old timers, don't ever take away this option!

    Deniz, I'm about to move away from SwiftKey as I want the arrow key at the top, as I kept making lots of mistakes hitting the arrow keys at the bottom.
    I've tried the Shift key cursor movement and its inaccurate, random and slow. When I'm typing I often need speed and precision as I'm taking notes on someone taking. I don't have time to hold my finger down for a second to activate the space position, then 2-3 seconds to try and move it to the correct position, then often end up in the wrong position anyway.
    My use case is to have the arrow keys at the top, so I can tap a key to go back, forward, up or down precisely and quickly as required.
    It would be easy for you to add an option to have arrow keys at top, or bottom.
    Enough people have asked for it. Please add this very minor but useful feature.
    I'm about to try other keyboards that have arrow keys at the top.
