When will the Halo keyboard on the Yogabook get fixed?

2017-01-01, 8:27 AM

Several of the reviews of the Yogabook mentioned problems with the Hako keyboard missing the first character typed, and my new Yogabook does exactly that.

 

When can we expect a fix? I am surprised it has been allowed to fester like this.

 

Things i would like to see fixed:

  • The missing first character
  • Arrow keys don't move the vertical bar insertion point when editing. You need to touch the screen and get the green blob version of the insertion point.
  • If the Halo keyboard is active the on-screen keyboard should be suppresed properly. At the moment it is displayed for every new text field, and only vanishes when you start to use the halo.
  • Need a way to calibrate the halo.  The upper part of my space bar is often seen as a 'v' or a 'b'

Another problem i keep having iscthe Halo keyboard getting stuck in upper case. It seems to happen if I put several spaces after punctuation. Not just full stops, but semicolons or brackets too.

Hello Brunnian  and welcome to the community,

 

I know that this is being looked into and hopefully will be fixed with the next update.

Any news about when that might be?

It would be nice if when (if?) my tablet eventually comes back from repair that the fix would be waiting for me!

was a fix for this found? My New Yoga Book still has these 2 problems. The auto capitalization of every letter is the worst.

I have had 3 updates since this message, including this week's update to Android 7, and the "first character" bug is still there.  If anything it is made worse by the "shift character" bug that has now appeared, whereby capitalised initial letters on proper nouns do not appear while touch typing.

December 2017 and this extremely frustrating missing first key press bug is still here.  For such a great tablet with the innovative keyboard I just don't get why this hasn't been fixed. 

 

Edit: OTA update overnight (Dec 4th) has fixed this now.
