KEYBOARD QUESTIONS

2018-01-21, 4:24 AM
I had an LG phone before and its keyboard was much superior to this - so I wanted to ask about few things and how to adjust them. 1) Is there a way to lock capital letters? This is especially annoying when typing long passwords in capital letters, LG keyboard allowed to lock in capital letters (Like pressing CAPS lock) by pushing on the arrow up twice. It doesn't work like that here. 2) How to make a separate row of numbers on top of the letters? 3) How to insert a question mark button between the "dot" button and "return" button? 4) ultimately - if those are not possible - how to install an LG keyboard? (please explain as I am not an advanced user and I simply don't know how to do it) Thanks in advance

I use Swiftkey from the Android play store to get a friendly keyboard (hitting shift once capatilises only the first letter of the next word once, hitting shift twice keeps uppercase until you hit shift again).

I also use Swiftkey instead of the stock keyboards on all my devices. It has a lot more features than the stock keyboards, including swipe style typing, arrow keys, emojis, GIFs, dedicated number row, and especially a caps lock (I can't believe a modern keyboard wouldn't have that).

as per my testing below are results :

1) its working at my end if you press long shift key a small line will apear on shift key .

2) separate row of numbers not if you caps all letter i am getting this row, but not all time .

3) you might not be able to do this as its all default rom by google , but you can use other keyboards from playstore.

4) not sure you will get exactly which you can get btw, but from playstore try others

Oh, thank you Draco for item 1. You are right.. After pushing on it for longer the caps lock works. Very good. Thank you. mirrortokyo: thank you for the tip. I am trying to figure that out.

If you press on Google logo, you will see more options. There you will also find three dots, and settings, where you can enable number row, or change theme...

If you are using Messages, or internet browser, when typing you should see somthing like this.

After that, you click three dots, and after that settings, and you should be able to find option for adding number row. Under settings there is option to add number row. You can configure language options, theme...
