Matthew,

 

Nice to know that others can confirm the problem and I’m not the only one.

 

Also nice to hear from you.  Hope all is going well.

 

Stay safe.

Hi Pete,

 

Just confirming that my experience has been the same as yours. I'm using both an iPhone 11 Pro and an iPad Pro.

Thanks for confirming.  It would be nice if this could be fixed since it is a disincentive for relying on the keyboard.

Hi Pete,

 

I've noticed the same thing with FlickType on my SE 2020 running iOS 14.0.1. I've been unable to determine any pattern regarding what causes it to stop working but when it does, I've been losing what I've typed in that session and have had to go into Settings, General, Keyboard, and delete the FlickType keyboard and reinstall it to get things working again. I've posted a couple of times here about the issue but haven't seen anything from Kosta or from anyone else with a workaround.

I am running iOS 14.1 on an iPhone XR with Voiceover.

 

I am still occasionally seeing the issue that, when I try to use Flicktype, touch Typing seems to be turned off and Flicktype won’t work properly until I turn this off in the rotor setting.

 

This seems to mostly happen when I try to Share a news article from the Apple News app via a text message or e-mail.

 

Mostly Flicktype works as expected, but sometimes seems to get into this mode where Touch Typing is automatically turned off.

 

Can anything be done about that?

 

Thanks.
