@david.boddie regarding feedback… This is more about space on the screen - I’m not sure about implementation. A big screen like 5.7" should have more buttons on the keyboard (I’m comparing to an inch smaller with more keys). I noticed the screencaptures in this issue.
Why not have more buttons available on the keyboard layout? I’m sure english can appreciate having more convenient access to commas and slashes etc. Other languages would need to fill those with their characters. Second and third row already have empty space, which admittedly looks nice and may help defining keys better, but its of no use, if parts of alphabet is behind menus.
Regarding the menu from “globe” icon, how about include there the smiley-icon list as well an expanded charactermap. Import these to text by touching, like keybutton. As I looked at the number of buttons in the three keyboard screens, with additional characters in other languages, something has to go - and I see you’ve already had to ditch some. Localized keyboards would still need to be figured out, but a larger fullscreen scrollable list could be used to store the ones that are more seldom needed, but still kept handy(ish). Such a grid/list-type thing could also have (separate) user defined strings of text (“In a meeting - will message you later”, “Of course I love you” etc. )
