Yes, if you bring up the control centre you are definitely starting your initial touch way to low. It is not necessary to do this in Flicktype, starting up higher and swiping up works just as well and it won’t bring up the control centre.

Hello, 

 When doing the flick up and hold gesture to switch to the iOS keyboard, be sure to start the gesture about an inch above the bottom of the iPhone. This will prevent accidentally engaging the control panel.

But these two buttons act strangely sometimes.
When dismissing the keyboard, it happens that last lines of text are deleted, and when switching keyboards, it sometimes opens the control
centre. I'm using an iPhone seven with last iOS 11, not quite sure what is happening.

Hey Kosta.

If it's a WhatsApp issue, is there a way to tell them about it? They have a support page, but how can we explain them what's happening technically speaking, since it only happens with flick type?

I've been using what's app. And have had no crashes. Could the issue be with a older I device with a slower processer? I've using I phone 8.

Punctuation preference

Jean-Philippe Rykiel
 

Hi there,

I've asked this question before but didn't have any feedback.

How many of you would like to have the comma , Sign appear before the period sign in the punctuation list? I seem to use comma more frequently, am I the only one? I think it would be nice to have a Choice. What do you say?

Best regards,

JPR

Or, maybe, have the comma Appear first, and the new line gesture insert a period?

I use the period symbol more than the comma symbol so that would be inconvenient for me. I don't mind swiping down to get a comma but to each his own I guess. Anyway, Kosta will have the final say so I'll support whatever he decides. This has become my favorite app.

Possible compromise

Morzorak@...
 

How about if they make it so that when you swipe right it brings up the punctuation based on a custom field like the emoji? Then like the emoji you can select which symbols are available and in which order. Put your period, comma, or even hashtag first as you prefer.

Re: Possible compromise

Ken Clarkg
 


 That sounds the best way, because why mesh it up for others. And really it's not hard to do its only one flick down.

Re: Possible compromise

 

I hope the period remains as it is. After all a double press of the spacebar using the iOS keyboard also inserts a period and nobody is asking Apple to change it to a comma. I assume that strictly from a statistical point of view the period is used more in most western languages than the comma and therefore it is what the default is.

 

In the above paragraph I ended the three sentences with a period, but didn’t need to use a single comma. In this last sentence one comma was used.

WhatsApp crash update: important information

 

We have now determined that the issue lies purely within WhatsApp and their recent update a couple of weeks ago. To help us resolve the issue, please file a bug report with them using the below template. The more people file the bug, the sooner the issue will be resolved. To submit a bug report, open up WhatsApp, go to Settings, Help, Contact Us. Paste the text from the template below into the textfield, and then tap Next at the top right. You might then be presented with a list of questions that WhatsApp thinks are relevant to your inquiry. Ignore those and select "This does not answer my question" at the very bottom of the screen. This will pop up an email ready to be sent to the WhatsApp support address. Make sure the composed email includes the entirety of the template text and optionally include somewhere a date and time of the last couple of times the app crashed. Template text follows below:

---

Dear WhatsApp support team,

Since version 2.18.71.6, I have been experiencing a WhatsApp crash that is preventing me from using your app in conjunction with the FlickType keyboard. FlickType is a keyboard for blind and low-vision VoiceOver users like myself, and unlike most other keyboards, it takes up the entire screen when it pops up. The crash occurs as soon as the keyboard pops up in a conversation textfield, and following their own investigation, the FlickType developers believe that it is the full-screen aspect of the keyboard that indirectly causes WhatsApp to crash (FlickType itself is not crashing). Please note that the problem does not always happen, and seems to be more likely to happen on threads with a lot of messages, as opposed to threads with only a handful of messages.

While there are no steps that can reliably reproduce the issue, below are some technical details from the Flicktype developers that might assist you in addressing the problem:

> 1. All collected WhatsApp crash logs from our users follow the same pattern, where a layout operation triggers a subsequent layout operation ad infinitum, until the stack space (approximately 512 invocations) is exhausted and the WhatsApp terminates with a segmentation fault.
2. The last part of the stack trace is not always the same, but is almost certainly unrelated to the cause of the crash.
3. A sample crash log (unsymbolicated) can be found here: https://github.com/keleftheriou/FlickType/blob/5ef1a5a9e0666e0869edc3426389b929400822d4/tmp/WhatsApp-2018-07-12-173526.ips.crash
4. The above crash log, partially symbolicated to show UIKit and other system calls can be found here: https://github.com/keleftheriou/FlickType/blob/5ef1a5a9e0666e0869edc3426389b929400822d4/tmp/WhatsApp-2018-07-12-173526.ips-PARTIALLY-SYMBOLICATED.crash
5. A sample WhatsApp log with multiple `chatmsgs//preserve-scroll-position/failed: empty table` entries right before the crash can be found here: https://github.com/keleftheriou/FlickType/blob/8a309244bde6c02d3101846a85e126a30f4fb057/tmp/whatsapp-2018-07-15-16-21-49-628-WhatsApp-87-launch-CRASH-redacted.log
6. We are more than happy to help in any way we can. We can be reached at @FlickType and answer any additional questions you might have to help resolve the issue as quickly and as easily as possible.
Thank you for your time, and I'm really looking forward to being able to use WhatsApp with FlickType again!

Warmly,
A VoiceOver WhatsApp user.

Text predictability

Alan Robbins <alan1057@...>
 

Is there a way when I am using the app to increase the reliability of text predictability? It seems that the most recent version is even less predictable than previous versions that I have tried. When I first started using it, it seemed almost totally accurate but now I am having to search for the proper word. Just wondering if there is a way of touching the screen that will increase predictability? Thanks for a great app.

I use the period most so would rather have that first.
I agree, it is a great app.
I just have a little trouble dismissing the keyboard sometimes.
What is the easiest way to do that?

UPDATING FLICKTYPE BETA AND A BUG

Sameer Vasta
 

Hi all

Firstly, How do you update Flicktype beta?

Secondly, I founda bug besides the Flicktype crashing bug. Flicktype
for some or other reason doesn't do text replacement. Just to
clarify, I assigned the letters "SA" as a shortcut for the word
South-Africa, that being the country where I come from. When I use
flicktype and type "SA", the word South-Africa doesn't appear onscreen
as I believe it should.

Any ideas on both these issues?

Kind regards

Sameer

Changing keyboard to landscape

Sent from my iPhone when I first got flipped type I found a landscape button and was practicing and landscape. Now I can’t find that anymore. How do I get to that option?

Re: Punctuation preference

Yeah me too, I use a period more than a cama. and if I need a cama it's simple and quick to insert one.

Re: Punctuation preference

the best way for me is  to use the flick down and hold. If you have issues getting that to work use the dismiss button at the bottom right corner of the screen.

Hello,
To update FlickType, open “test”flight, & find the FlickType app, & Push, “update” by double-tapping on it.

I’m sorry, but Ican’t answer your other question.

Let me know if that helps.

Thanks,

Hello,
Try typing bore accurately. I found the the predictions were not as exact as I got faster with FlickType because my typing gut sloppy. Once I paid more attention to my typing accuracy, and tapped the screen closer to where the letters should be, the predictions were almost flawless.

Hello, there is no longer a switch to loch FlickType in landscape mode.
As long as you have the screen rotation unlocked in the control panel you can simply rotate your iPhone into landscape and FlickType will follow.
