Yes, I have encountered this as well. However, performing the one finger flick up and hold gesture slightly higher than the bottom edge does work. I definitely want to be able to perform this particular function one handed, so I am willing to just practice and put myself into the habit of performing the gesture slightly higher. Rather than it potentially getting replace with a gesture that would require two hands. Definitely don't want that again!
Also, just a small correction; the last time we had a similar problem was when we were trying to decide on a convenient gesture for bringing up the menu in the main app. That was a disaster, I clearly remember it, and I definitely remember myself being one of the first ones to express how poorly that was working. However, the major difference between this situation and that one was, this time we are working with a one finger flick up and hold gesture. Back then, it was simply a one finger flick up gesture I believe.

If my memory serves me right.

Hi Kim,

You can dismiss the keyboard with a flick down and hold, whereas a flick up and hold will switch to the next keyboard, eg the iOS keyboard.

Thanks for reminding me of the difficulty with the flick up gesture. What if you start the flick up from a little higher on the screen, avoiding the very bottom edge? Does that work for you?

hello all,
Okay so the flicking up to dismiss is no good!!!
It keeps entering my control panel thing, where it has airplane mode
and all that.
We had a problem with that sort of gesture when we originally tested
the app. that persists here as well.
I would suggest changing that particular gesture. I haven't tested
this one thoroughly yet, to offer any other feedback.
I'm sure you all shall hear from me soon.
thank you, and have a lovely day.

Hello, so far, so good.
I like the new line gesture and the emoji😎
I notice that if I leave notes after typing with FlickType, and then
return, I am still getting text repeated.

Is it my imagination or is this keyboard faster than before?

- Merged touch typing and flick typing styles. There is no longer a
spacebar, delete, style toggle or shift key when exploring the
keyboard. If you are in numbers or symbols, entering a space will
always return you to letters.
- Magic tap to toggle the primary layout, between letters and numbers.
- Single tap with two fingers to toggle the secondary layout. In
letters, this switches between lowercase and uppercase. In numbers, it
switches between numbers and symbols.
- Added emoji shortcuts 😎. Flick right to enter a period, then flick
up. These will be configurable in the future.
- Flick down and hold to dismiss, or up and hold for next keyboard.
- Flick right and hold for new line / return.
- Three finger tap and hold to read back.
