How does the "Lang" button work? Do you need to hold it down to access the Russian characters?

I'm not sure about the "Lang" key. That's new to me and does not exist the keyboards that I am used to. It may need Samsungs own input method to work.

I might give it a try though. In a worst case scenario I guess it might be possible to use the "Lang" key as "Alt Gr" to access the Russian characters. Not an ideal solution but better than nothing I guess.

Install Keytest.apk from here and note down all the scancodes for the keys in the top and the bottom row.

(Also if any qwertz (German) or azerty (french) users read this I am also looking for the scancode for "#" (German keyboard) and "*" (French keyboard) for Samsung keyboard dock or bluetooth keyboards. Seems Samsung using different codes for the extra key on 102-key layouts than a standard PC keyboard does.)

-multitasking button
-brightness up\down
-hide keyboard button
-voice search button

Does anyone know a fix for that?

Thanks in advance
Try my new app. I just added Russian layout to it for the russian layout I put the complete US layout on ALT and ALT+SHIFT positions. You can also configure one of the function keys to turn remapping on and off but I see now that the samsung keyboard does not have function keys.

Try the demo version and if it works, then using the debugging menu to read the scancode for the "Lang" button and hopefully I can add language switching support also for that key.

Hebrew is added now but you propably know that allready. "Alt+Shift" is not a good option because Alt+Shift+Key is used in some layouts to store 4 different symbols on the same key.
