Default Samsung Keyboard Update / Change?

Hello all:

Has anyone else had the Samsung Keyboard suddenly change in the past 24-48 hours?

Until yesterday, I could long-press on letters, such as "m", and access the symbol on the same key as the letter. Last night, however, the keyboard changed and no longer has the long-press option. All symbols and punctuation are only available on the period key or in the symbol menu.

I feel like I'm going nuts - this is exceptionally aggravating. I know I can switch keyboards but the prior Samsung Keyboard was actually working very well for me - I don't particularly want to go back to regular SwiftKey or the Google Keyboard.

Thanks in advance!

EDIT (12:13PM EST): Here are pictures:

What it looks like now:

What it looked like 24 hours ago: (XDA doesn't want me to post any pictures, but it had punctuation marks etc. over each letter).

I'm also running MJE. I did use the modified framework on a rooted stock rom to allow wireless tether - but that's the only change recently.

This really is driving me nuts...

My long press buttons are working for me. Some even have more than one option when long pressed. What version is your keyboard?

I came here to post this question. It seems as though my secondary symbols have disappeared too. I have to press the SYM key to get to punctuation now. I'm not sure when it happened... I haven't accepted an update for the keyboard that I recall. I'm running CleanROM.

Are you rooted? Do you have xposed framework installed? If so, install wanam module. In system, there is an option to show or hide keyboard symbols. Give that a shot.

I see that option in Wanam. It was disabled. I enabled it, but it didn't add the symbols...

Still nothing for me. It sucks because I really like the keyboard. Oh well, back to Thumb Keyboard for now.
