DONATE TO ME
I have tried to use 3 different keyboards since upgrading to Dark Raider ROM with kernel by Kozmik...it will download and says installed but it won't come up..I have selected the keyboard in settings but when I bring up email, texts, etc...the standard keyboard comes up..I long pressed in a text area and it does nothing...I have used keyboards before flashing ROMS but this is the first time I have attempted it since flashing several different ROMS...probably something simple I am missing...thanks in advance if anyone has and guidance..

In ICS, pressing and holding the input area is not how you change keyboards. That is done using a notification setting that appears wherever you enter a text input field.

I tried thumb keyboard for a whole day eventually just switched back to the ics keyboard I found in the market. Simply just too slow for my tastes. I have to say there has to be something different about the ics framework because all keyboards that were fast with gingerbread are slow on ics. I think right now the problem with ics is just not enough phones have it for developers to care

You can change your keyboard size in settings.

The stock HTC one is very nice and fast but they left out one thing: auto space after prediction selection! Only android keyboard I've ever seen that doesnt auto space
