Re: Need help using latest FlickType Watch/Container app after inadvertent update


 

Thanks, Chuck. I think I’ve finally caught up and agree with you and Luke that the three finger quadruple tap for copying is unnecessary and your way is much faster.

Hello Alan,

I just tried typing in FlickType, then I went to notes via the app switcher and did a two finger quadruple tap which pasted the text into notes.

 

I then used the app switcher to go back to FlickType where the text had been cleared.

 

No need to use the three finger quadruple tap to copy the voiceover, and actually no need to even listen to what you have just typed.

 

I hope this helps, but if it doesn’t, no worries, do whatever works for you! 👍

I think "closing" in this context, means "leaving the app". You shouldn't need the quad tap to copy, it should do it automatically when you switch to twitter, which is closing (leaving) the Flicktype app.
Assuming you have the copy and clear setting on.

Chuck,

 

I’m not sure how you’re leaving FlickType to get that result. Several times today, I typed several tweets in the container app, did a three finger quadruple

tap to copy the text, opened the App switcher to go to Twitter, and pasted a new message using the two finger quadruple tap. So, I never closed FlickType

which I think is required in order to execute the copy that is in the settings.

I went into settings, tapped on copy and clear on exit, and did a three finger quadruple tap to copy the text to send to you in an email, but when I left

FlickType it copied what was on the screen... Which was nothing.

      Yes, I understand that, but what I realized is you can’t do anything with the text you copied without leaving Fliktype. 😎

     Thanks, Chuck. I do have the copy and clear turned on in Settings and it does work as you described. I like knowing all the available

If you have a copy and clear an exit turned on in settings, it is unnecessary to do the three finger quadruple tap. When you leave the app, it

will copy the text, and erase the text that you copied with the gesture.

However, if you do not have a copy and clear an exit turned on in settings, then you’re probably taking the easiest route.

     Hi Chuck,

 

      

 

     And I followed your command gesture setting to make the two finger quadruple tap a paste which goes hand in hand with the built in

     three finger quadruple tap copy of what Voiceover last spoke.

 Yes, I use that three finger quadruple tap quite a bit

     Hi Chuck,

 

      

The other option is to do a three finger quadruple tap to copy the VoiceOver spoken text from the container window and paste it to

the replied to email using the rotor edit button as I'm doing just now.

 

Thanks for your help.

FlickType Watch/Container app after inadvertent update

 

Hello Alan,

I have tried to use the share button to answer existing emails with no success.

What I do, as I am doing now, is type my response in the container app, then I close the app which will copy the text to the

clipboard (be sure you have this turned on in settings). Now go to the email and paste the text.

I have it set up in  settings, accessibility, voice over, commands, editing.  that a two finger quadruple tap will perform a paste.

The share button is good for starting new emails, messages, and exporting to notes, Google, etc.

     Hi List,

 

      

 

     Well, after painstakingly updating every app on my device with a new app in the App Store accept for FlickType, either

     my device or the Apple gods or something decided to update FlickType too. Now, I’ve lost my keyboard extension and I’m

     trying to figure the best way to use the container app in the way I use my device. I tend to open an email or text in

     order to reply to it and then want to type my response using the container app and copy and paste it to the appropriate

     place. If there is a way to do this with the FlickType update running in iOS 14.8, I haven’t figured out how. I get a

     share button in the container app which works fine to copy what was typed into a new message or email but doesn’t seem

     to work in replying to an existing message. I would very much appreciate any help directing me on how to do what I want

     to do with the container app.

 

      

 

     Thanks in advance for your help.
