  1. Hide character preview

    Please add a setting to hide the character oreview pop up when a key is pressed. The system keyboard has this option and your iPad keyboard also doesn't show the preview.

    Hi, could you give a bit more information please? What kind of “text replacement” are you talking about – autocorrect, selecting from the shortcut bar, or iOS custom keyboard shortcuts? If the latter, are you seeing the replacement in the bar and it’s just not substituting automatically, or do you not even see it? Finally, what is your Typefinity autocorrect setting? Thanks.

  4. PadKeys crash with SIGQUIT

    Since I installed iPadOS 13, PadKeys has crashed randomly with SIGQUIT. This apparently means that it has attempted an action the system does not like. This has continued with iPadOS 14. This doesn't seem to have any consequences, but is certainly incorrect behavior. I've attached a typical log, and my log of all the events I've observed. These events do not seem to be coordinated with the jetsam events. I have saved all the logs, and could provide them if desired.

  5. Remove incorrect auto correct words

    Often when typing quickly I will create a new jumble of letters that isn't a word, but is similar to a word that the keyboard remembers forever. This means that this fake word is now part of suggestions for real words and gets in the way. Currently there is no way to remove these fake words from suggestions, I'd like to be able to do this please. Thank you.

  6. Hold-Spacebar to move cursor: Simulate vertical cursor movement workaround suggestion.

    The addition of hold-and-slide on the spacebar has been great. I know Apple has restricted vertical cursor movement.

    A workaround suggestion: I don't know if Apple permits it, but


    • I suggest that if upwards/downwards movement is detected, the cursor moves back/forwards approximately the number of characters in a line, (say about 40 or 50 characters), until you release your finger. It doesn't really matter if it doesn't end up exactly above where it was, all we need is to go backwards in our document quickly!


    • I know there's not much space for downward movement, but there's a few mm, and…

  7. _Holding_ down Shift to turn Backspace into Forward Delete

    A suggestion is that while the the Shift key (and/or the Option key), (as opposed to a regular press, or Shift-lock/Option-lock), it turns the backspace into a Forward Delete.

    This would be a subtle change, and its presence might be highlighted to users by highlighting the Delete key in a slightly different colour when Shift/Option is pressed.

    Not intended as advertising, but I guess it is if you see it that way. 🙂 Just information telling what keyboard and language you’ve got selected. The system keyboard does the same (don’t remember who copied who). SwiftKey is more an example of what could be called advertising; they include their logo and don’t just flash it but leave it up permanently.

  9. Add shortcut to insert photo or sketch on Padkeys option bar.

    I'd like to hide the Apple options bar with these shortcuts and just use the Padkeys option bar.
    Of main interest in the Mail app are: insert photo and insert sketch.
    These could be part of a submenu to not block too much space.

  10. Iphone shift special characters on OPKL keys

    The most common punctuation characters missing in the main alpha iPhone keyboard are the colon, semi colon, single quote and double quotes. The O, P, K, and L keys are already a pale grey. Why not add a opt where they have the colon, semi colon, single quote and double quotes as shift characters on these keys - it would mean there was less times you would need to go to the option keyboard.

    We’ve now (version 4.4.1) made all of these common characters accessible after pressing opt, no additional shift is needed. Is this alternative still needed? If so, how would the uppercase versions of these letters be obtained? And is this about getting to the keys (which would be same number of taps either way), or labeling them in some way so the character “behind them on opt” is visible?

    Please vote for this if you’d be interested in it on iPhone. If we did it, it would not be optional, but maybe phone model / orientation dependent. On iPhone 5 and 6 form factors (includes X, XS) there is not a lot of room in portrait mode, particularly now with emoji completions.

  16. Create a taller keyboard (landscape & portrait) for iPad

    Could you please add a setting where the keyboard (only the top row) becomes taller than it already is in "regular" mode? You could call this new setting "tall" mode.

    I've attached mockups for both landscape and portrait.

    Note: "Tall" mode in landscape actually looks like a full-sized keyboard, and only takes up a few extra pixels.

    P.S. If you combine this with my comments in the suggestion entitled "Arrow Keys: ALL of them! ▲▼◄ ► ↑ ↓ ← →", you would get the Ultimate iPad keyboard!
    e.g. look at the image: "5iPadlandscapetallwupdownkeys.png"

  17. Create a taller keyboard (in landscape mode) for larger iPhone models

    Thank you so much for all the effort you've put into your keyboard.

    Could you please add a setting where the keyboard (only in landscape mode) becomes taller than it already is in "regular" mode? You could call this new setting "tall" mode.

    Ideally, it would be for the iPhone XS Max, and iPhone Plus models. Note that only the letter keys are 24px taller than in regular mode (on an iPhone XS Max display).

    Note: I'd be willing to pay $200 to get this implemented.

  18. Smaller text on keys on ipad

    When using PadKeys on an iPad, it would be great, if there was a couple of options in 'preferences' to set the smaller size to text for the keys. Also, it would be great, if in addition to 'Long-press' access to 'shifted' symbols, the access was available by hold-swipe down, similar to the system iOS keyboard. This would make for a faster workflow. Thanks.

    We already offer swipe UP for access to shifted variant on the symbol keys. Are you saying you would like this on letters as well, or that you’d prefer down to up?

    As far as keycap font, we’ll offer a “small-label” theme if enough users are interested, just like the current “bold” theme provides a way to have bold keycaps.

  19. spacebar needs more height.

    i keep mishitting v or b... even when i try not to.

    The backspace key is not wde enough as has not been wide enough for quite some time, now.

    In the latest release (4.2.2) we increased sensitivity at the edge of the keyboard, so it should be possible to tap more confidently away from the brackets and have the presses register. Hopefully this will reduce the chances of accidentally hitting the brackets.
