Unhappy [Q] S4 Keyboard Problem

I was sending a text message and when I tried to long press the 'm' key to type a question mark I realized all of my long press punctuation options are gone. Puzzled, I looked in the keyboard's settings for a solution but couldn't find anything. I find it much less convenient to have to press the Sym button every time I want to insert punctuation. Has anyone else experienced this?

1. Go to Apps - Settings - More - Application manager - All (last tab) and look for "Samsung Keyboard"/"Keyboard Samsung"

1- Make a backup of ur Internal Memory
2- Do a factory reset:

- From your home screen press the apps icon in the lower right corner.
- Find and press the settings icon.
- In the upper end of the screen press the accounts tab.
- In the bottom of the next screen press the Backup and reset button.
- Press the factory data reset.
- Read the info on your cell phone screen and hit Reset device.

Ok I did a factory reset but my keyboard still isn't fixed. Now I'm starting to wonder if it even had that feature in the first place. It did, didn't it?

That is so weird. I swear I could long press a letter and it would come up with a symbol. Oh well thanks for your help

For anyone interested, I did find an app that adds this feature onto your stock keyboard called Samsung Keyboard Alt Symbols, and it can be downloaded through the Xposed Installer.
