  10. Greetings
    I wish to know if there is a hiragana input as I am not able to find it, only katakana.
    I would like to know if the gear button could be pressed once in order for the whole menu to appear, instead of holding it to the desired menu
    Excellent app

  12. This keyboard worked perfectly on my older Android phones such as HTC Desire X etc. Now i have Coolpad Torino R108, but Cyrilic encoding in SMS wont work at all. Any Cyrilic letter! I installed languages and plugins, but my phone sends empty SMS messages with only interpunction symbols in it.
    Messengers and social networks work great, but SMS with Cyrilic character encoding wont work. Does anybody have sugesttion?

  17. Hi excellent keyboard, thank you. In Word and Google Docs there is formattimg bar that floats over standard keyboard, I cant get it to work with this keyboard when using it landscape, its hidden. Is there a way to fix? Thank you

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think it is caused by floating mode.
      Try docking mode by resize the keyboard

      Two ways to resize:
      ⑴ gear key→ theme→ size|pos
      ⑵ Drag top left corner, and then use another finger to resize

      When keyboard width equal to screen width, it will be forced to dock instead of float.
