Shake to undo while using flicktype

Kimber Gardner <kimbersinbox1963@...>
 

Hello,

I noticed some strange behavior while typing with flicktype. When
using the standard English iOS keyboard, shake to undo allows me to
erase whatever I have typed. However if I typed using flicktype then
shake to undo, a prompt appears that says "redo typing" rather than
"undo typing." If I tap that button I am returned to the document but
nothing has changed.

I guess this makes some kind of sense since redo and undo are not the
same thing. But since the function is shake to "undo" shouldn't
flicktype maintain that functionality?

Thanks for your attention.

While this is true, Flicktype usually isn’t able to advance past full carage returns. This is a problem with many 3rd party keyboards, not just Flicktype. The same behavior can also be seen with Mbraille, for example. .

I think I figured out the line by line on flicktype if you’re an actual FlickType full screen with your typing that you’re typing coming up on top there I can flip up and down but if I loaded document from light notes or something and I tried flickering three fingers left or right it reads a whole screen so it must only work when you’re actually typing the document. Thanks for the help

Hi Ken,

Are you flicking left and right with 3-fingers? This should allow you to navigate sentence by sentence after you've typed, when you're in full screen mode. And I assume you know this, but then you can navigate with a 2-finger flick in either direction to navigate by word. Please let us know how these gestures are working for you.

Thanks,
Ashley

Hi Sameh,

Currently we support English and Spanish with more languages in the pipeline.

Thanks!

Hi Ken,

Thanks for the suggestion. This happens due to an iOS limitation, not at each word, but when there's period, new line, essentially any time there's a new sentence. We're going to try to figure out a workaround for these kinds of iOS limitations, but it may take us some time to come up with a good solution.

Thanks again!
Ashley

Unfortunately to the best of my knowledge, this is a limitation of Apple, and not somethingFlicktype can fix. Would love to be wrong about this, however.

When I use the three finger left or right swipe all it does is read the whole document no matter what I do?

Hi Ken, the gesture to navigate by entire sentences is a three finger left or right flick, but it does not work if you have Zoom enabled.

I don't know how I wrote watch in there I think I meant worked. Also I can't get that three finger swipe to work for me to go from line to line!

Just out of curiocity, but what is this about Flicktype and the Apple Watch?
It used to be that a 2-finger swipe down inserted a new line or maybe that was in Fleksy, but now it does other things and I think the swipe right with a brief hold works quite well.

I like to use the full screen mode the best and this Apple Watch just fabulous until I want to move up a lion or down the line I wish we could figure out a gesture like maybe a two finger stroke up for a two finger stroke down to go to the next or previous line that would be great

I may be way off base, but I was wondering if it could be possible to remove the end top of document markers so you would not get stopped when flipping thru and could flip thru the whole document?

Hi Scott, and Sieghard,
Hehe, yes, though we always try to do our best to accommodate as many people as possible. As it is now, there's an option so that you can either listen to audio while typing or so that the audio does not interfere with typing depending on preference. The opposite setting from unduckable is customizable, and yes, the music should not play with this setting on.

Warmly,
Ashley

My personal preference is for the music/podcast to stop when using FlickType
as you are relying on the voice feedback in FlickType while typing. I am not
able to appreciate a good song or interesting podcast whilst trying to
decipher the spoken words in FlickType. So, I like it the way it is currently.
As with most things, a settings option to change this can suit everyone though
and risks making the app more complex than necessary. Who said being an app
developer was easy (

Hi,

 

I agree with you about the toggle for the two finger tap to change case, as I do end up envoking that accidentally much more often than I actually intend to use it, and typically when I do want to capitalize a word, I just long press on the letter anyway.

 

 

However, when you manually enter a word in Flicktype, it actually IS saved to your dictionary when you leave the app you’re in as I understand it.
