Re: ½ screen keyboard

Michael Maslo

Hello kosta, I am having major issues with flick type and half screen. I am using it with voice over. First when I was responding to this email, the cursor jumped all over the place. For example. I was typing and for no apparent reason the cursor jumped down to the middle of the message I was responding to. This happened several times before I got frustrated and went back to full size keyboard. Secondly, when typing and having to flick down the focus is lost and the keyboard disappears. It is past frustrating when this happens and this behavior has been evident for a very long time. I am running iOS 12 on a iPhone x 

 Banks for your assistance.

Hey Chuck,

Kosta could honestly keep using the menu system he has in place. He could simply add one more option that is the standard iOS keyboard size. This would be ok with me. The menu structure works great. No reason to reinvent the wheel for a menu selection option. 

I just feel that there is a long distance to travel to find the send button in the messages app, because of this distance I keep on triggering the letters O and P. I have to delete them just about every time I look for the send button. This would be eliminated for me with a smaller keyboard option.

Perhaps kosta could  make a slider .Like a volume slider to control the size of the keyboard.
I don’t even know if this is possible, but it might be an idea.

.Hi Ed, 
Personally . 

On .Aug personally, I like the half screen. It allows me to interact with the fields above, yet is large enough for my fat fingers , 2018, at 10:48 AM, Ed Worrell via Gro.uops.Io <ed.worrell@...> wrote:


I have just installed iOS 12 beta 9 and all is well again with the FlickType half screen option. What ever Apple did in this build seems to have fixed the issues I was having with interacting with the upper half of the screen.

I personally would like to see the size of the keyboard a little smaller. I really don’t like the half screen option. I would like to see it the same size of the default iOS keyboard. In the future I would also like to see a minimal size keyboard, I really find myself missing this option from the original Fleksy days.

Hi Kosta ,
I am finding the ½ screen keyboard is working well as long as I do not try moving the cursor .

I find if I have to move the cursor I am better off using the rotor and flicking by word or letter , an obvious advantage of the ½ screen keyboard. 
Also , when I need to read the text back, I simply touch in the text field and let VoiceOver review for me. 

I am beginning to wonder if the to finger and three finger gestures are still necessary with the ½ screen keyboard .

Again , just spitballing.😎
