App Suggestion

Brad Dunse
 

Love the app.

I do have a possible suggestion.

Have you considered a gesture to activate or bring focus to the send button?

Three-finger double-tap, or three-finger swipe and hold?

It might not even be technically possible, or user plausible ... just a thought I had while writing.

text replacement issue

Jean-Philippe Rykiel
 

Hello all.

I have a strange issue with text replacement, which seems to be flick type related .

All text replacements with definitions longer than 100 characters only expand in flick type, and not with the standard keyboard any more. But removing flick type from the iPhone does not help. Could anyone try the FOLLOWING?

1., Go to settings/General/keyboards/text replacements, and enter a definition with a long text, more than 100 characters, and its associated shortcut, then click Save.

2, try it in Flick type, try it with the standard keyboard.

3, Tell me what happens.

Thanks for your help,

best,

JPR

Hi Brad,

Though it's a great idea, unfortunately, we are not able to invoke the send due to the fact that this is on the app side and not on the keyboard side.

Warmly,
Ashley

Hi JPR,

Thanks for including such great instructions on your issue, but I am not able to reproduce, my text replacement shortcuts are working in both places. My assumption is this may be on Apple's side.

Anyone else have a similar issue?

Thanks!
Ashley

Hi Ashlie.

Thank you for your reply. May I ask, how long are your text replacement definitions?

This seems to be the key of the problem, as short ones work on Both flick type and standard keyboards for me too.

How can I submit the problem to Apple, they will say that the problem is on flick type side, as the shortcut expands in flick type. Tell me what is the smartest way to tell them about the issue I'm having.

Best regards,

JPR

Not to worry. Merely a Suggestion.

Re: text replacement issue

 

Hi JPR,

Following your instructions, I created a definition with over 100 characters. They shouldn't feel like this is a FlickType issue since it does work in FlickType and does not work for the iOS keyboard if it were the other way around then it would make sense if they thought it was a FlickType issue. Here is a link for submitting issues to Apple: https://www.apple.com/feedback/iphone.html

Please let us know how it goes!

Ashley, I've got news for you, and for me to. A friend of mine just told me it was an iOS Bug, and that it has been Solved in the future iOS version that is already available to beta testers.

Few.

Can’t get either version working on an iPad 2 running iOS 11 or iOS 12

Every time I touch the screen with FT running it says the opening script a never types. Am I the only person with this problem?

Question about the Watch app

Tony James
 

Hi, I recently got the watch app but I’m still struggling with how to pop open the menu. I think I have to put focus on the Tips button and do a force touch. The problem is that I am not sure if I should do a normal voiceover double tap and hold or if I just do a single tap and hold. It seems as though I can pop open the manual successfully after I forced restart the app, but there’s probably a better way

hello,
A force touch in the center of the watch screen should open the menu. Give it a couple of seconds.

Good luck,

Cannot get flick type keyboard or FlickType Classic to work on my iPad

David Speck
 

Hello,
I have an iPad mini 2 running iOS 12.1. I have not been able to get any version of FlickType Classic to work properly on this iPad in iOS 11 or 12. Whenever I install either one, I can open the app, but when I touch the screen where the keyboard is, voiceover simply says what the opening script for flick flick type is. It never types anything. I cannot select letters or characters. None of the functions work. All I can do is close the app and uninstall it. Any idea why this is not working for me? Is anyone else having this problem? Our my messages to this forum even going through?
Thank you

Re: text replacement issue
