Question about editing capabilities

I have had the Freewrite since March but have only used it once. I was hoping to be able to do actual editing on it, but that doesn’t seem possible. Am I missing something?

Almost perfect

Others have written at length about the merits of the Freewrite, all of which seem apparent to me. I write to lament the absence of a single feature: the ability to scroll up and alter my text. I think this change could be made as an optional firmware update for those of us seeking a word processor rather than a typewriter.

An unfortunate design flaw

So far I have but one complaint, and unfortunately it is an issue that cannot be fixed with the chosen technology within the device. The amount of delay between me typing and the displayed word averages a complete word at a time. I often will be writing the second word before the first one even appears on the screen. I realize that using e-ink is the downfall to this so they're really is no point of me complaining. However it is a substantial fault in design that has caused considerable difficulty to type coherently consistently.

Word count doubled

A combination of a nice mechanical keyboard, an e-ink display and a distraction-free system has proved a winning combination. I’ve more than doubled my daily word counts, without any noticeable loss of quality. When I pick up the Freewrite I know I’m drafting. Simple. And there’s something compelling about this device, the click of its keys, the sturdy design lines, that makes me want to hurry to my writing. I’m not limited to my office, either. I can write in the garden or the local park. It seemed like an expensive luxury, but the Freewrite has quickly become a valuable part of my process.
