Re: Build 71

Ok , I've got the hang of dismissing the keyboard, however, I can see the issue with the way that the keyboard is dismissed..
I tried the flick up and hold, and I got the notification Centre.
I'm finding it hard to switch between FlickType and touch typing..
I'd like to see the numbers panel a bit larger.
But, on the hole, very happy with this new build👍. Also as I said in an earlier post, I'd like to see more emoji
‘May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.’

Subject: Re: [FlickType-alpha] Build 71
This is a superb release guys. Everything is working as expected and I've not found any faults. I've not managed to activate the control panel at all with the one finger swipe up and hold. It was suggested in a previous post that maybe the flick left and hold gesture could be used to dismiss the keyboard, but I was thinking would it be possible to have this as the multiple delete gesture in the same manner as in the app? The sentence boundary issue is the only problem I've encountered but that's not new to this build obviously. The new line gesture is perfect and I really like the flick up to enter the emojis👍
I think the scales have firmly tipped from the app to the custom keyboard with this release, once I break the force of habit. I will definitely still be using both however.
I'm away for a long weekend, returning Monday evening, so apologies in advance if my feedback is slightly slower over the next few days.
Many thanks as always,
