Re: Build 72

Hi Benny,
I usually insert a period between the last word and an emoji, but I can see a need for a space button.
If I really need a space in some situations, I'll go to the iOS keyboard and insert them after I am done typing.
Not the ideal solution, but it works.👍

Hey Benny,

The secret to entering an emoji is to flick right to space, then a second space for punctuation. Instead it of flicking down to change the punctuation, you will now flick up and there will be about 5 or 6 emoji characters.

I hope this helps,

I thick that that's is a good idea. However, I would put the space option at the top. Just before the full stop and before the emoji's.

Hey,

The other option is to have the keyboard place a space before the emoji.

This might be much simpler for the end user.

- Added a "Next Keyboard" button for those having trouble with the flick up & hold gesture. If you don't need the button, you can disable it from the main app settings.
- Also added a setting for a "Dismiss" button similar to the above, but this one is off by default since most people didn't seem to have trouble with the flick down & hold gesture. If you do have trouble performing that gesture, you can enable this button from the settings.
- The shift state now resets after entering a single character, so it behaves more like a shift key rather than a caps lock.
- The shift state now affects words that were not manually typed, meaning that if you switch to uppercase in the middle of a sentence and type a word like "banana", it will be capitalized.
- Words will be capitalized after a new line.
- On devices that support 3D Touch, pressing down harder while exploring the keyboard will toggle the secondary layout, meaning the state of shift if you are in letters, or switch between numbers and symbols if you are in either numbers or symbols.

Hey,

Yes there is. The enter or return key at the bottom right corner of the keyboard will insert a new line.

I hope this helps.

Sorry I was not clear. No, I have had no repeated text with build 73

Re: Repeating text solution?

I don't think it's the return key... I have never used it.

I have had build 73 running for a couple of hours. I haven't had any repeated text but I did have all my text disappear once in the notes app.

I tried to get the text to repeat while going to the iOS keyboard but could not. While dismissing, it happened often.

I'm sure Kosta will figure it out.

Hello Kosta,
I have been trying different apps and shutting down and returning to text etc. In the three apps I have been having the repeated text problems... Notes, journal, and mail.

I have not had any repeated text in any app as long as I go to the iOS keyboard, instead of dismissing FlickType. My uneducated conclusion is that the dismiss function is the culprit.

Btw, no text has vanished during the time of these tests. Could the dismiss also be the cause of that problem too?

I like the location of the enter key. I have not found the other key and I thought I had turned in on in settings. However once we can get the enter key to do more than I will be even happier.😎

Hey Kosta and all,


One big feature that is still making me use the default iOS keyboard more than I honestly want to now is the lack of the ability to use the enter key as a search button. I know in other apps the enter key is contextually aware of whether it's a search field, email field, or a message field. It would be great to have this ability. I understand it its not high on the list of features to see added, but it would be greatly appreciated.

I really don't know it this is possible but the enter key seems much harder to find than the dismiss keyboard button. I would maybe like to see the enter key slightly larger than the dismiss key. I find myself leaning more towards using the enter key than the gesture for new line.

Re: Build 72

Chanelle Allen
 

Hello,
Thank you, Kosta, for yet another FlickType release. I have been taking some time to get accustomed to the new gestures and just to think before writing the group.
First, the introduction of the "next keyboard" button is much appreciated. While I am capable of performing the gestures and would have little problem in doing so if the buttons are removed, I am more comfortable finding a button—especially one so conveniently located. I have removed dictation from the iOS keyboard, which has minimized my tendency to press the wrong button when switching to the FlickType keyboard.
On a related note, having the option to enable/disable the dismiss and next keyboards is great.👍 Kosta's ability to include buttons that a user may optionally utilize provided an idea for how one of my feature requests could be implemented. Before mentioning the request though, I will say that I never use the "dismiss keyboard" feature because it has been a hindrance to editing text and sending messages. Since I want my electronic communications to look as neat as possible, I take time to edit. Frequently, I may want to check how I spelled a word in the middle of a sentence or remove an extra space inserted by FlickType between a symbol such as a quotation mark and a word. The type of editing I perform requires my FlickType cursor position to sync or be transmitted correctly to the iOS system, an experience that has been most convenient when switching as opposed to dismissing keyboards. Switching keyboards with the correct cursor position retained has been problematic in the Notes app. I thought the problem had something to do with how I performed gestures, and while things improved, navigation and editing were more difficult in Notes than in Drafts, Messages, or Mail. Editing with VoiceOver in general is a clunky experience. Still, in the last two FlickType builds, sometimes, after switching keyboards and setting the rotor to navigate by characters or words, VoiceOver repeatedly says "FlickType" or the letter f with each flick until I touch somewhere on the screen, at which point the cursor could be a few words away from the original location. I am wondering if this behavior occurs in longer blocks of text. It is certainly more noticeable. (It was in the middle of this current message; by the end, normal behavior resumed.) My final thought on keyboard dismissal: Dismissing the keyboard in an app like Mail when moving from one field to another might be useful, but I still prefer the switching method. When dismissing FlickType, finding and tapping the "Send” button is impossible without first double tapping the text edit field in the Messages app.
Since Kosta was able to add optional keyboard buttons to FlickType, would creating a "delete" button toggled on or off in FlickType Settings also be possible? I would use a delete function for removing spaces between words and symbols and at the beginning and end of lines. Could we have the option to turn off the Return key at the bottom right of the keyboard. I have just realized that the keyboard might become very cluttered if someone wants all or most of the buttons enabled, so maybe my suggestion isn't practical.
Just as the ability to delete extra spaces or characters with the FlickType keyboard would be useful, I would like to request that reading by characters be reintroduced. The merging of flick and touch typing modes has simplified the FlickType keyboard experience, but I was disappointed when, due to the nature of typing styles being combined, reading by character was eliminated. Eventually adding phonetic feedback for manually typed words and the feature that spells back typing suggestions will hopefully reduce typos (I discovered a few in my emails and texts). Another option, though if the spell back feature is too difficult to develop for the FlickType keyboard, or if most people do not wish to hear their typing spelled back, is a gesture or mode to move/read by character both when reading previously entered text or reviewing FlickType suggestions. In that way, if we are not sure that FlickType said a particular word or one that sounded like it, we would have the means of clarification. In one of my typos, I meant to write the word "link" (l i n k) and somehow got the word "lick" (l i c k). I don't know how the two sounded so similar. Or, when I clearly meant to type the word "there" as in a place, FlickType substituted it with the other "their." These errors aren't too big of a deal, but I don't want to make a habit of them. The annoyance will also diminish once FlickType has context-sensitive autocorrect or whatever we were talking about a while back, but I would still like the ability to read by character, even if the function is not available until after the next app release.
I could do all of my editing using the iOS keyboard if these are not popular feature requests and since switching keyboards is easy. However, if the goal is to eliminate the need for the iOS keyboard, my requests may be worth considering.
Thank you.
Chanelle
