Issues with soft keyboards
I have tried a number of soft keyboards - SpbKeyboard, FingerKeyboard2, PCM Keyboard, as potential replacements for the hardware keyboard, or even the soft keyboard that comes with the device. I have two issues with them all, and I wonder if others in this forum share this view or have a way round the issues:
- The fact that none of them has readily accessible arrow buttons makes them clumsy. If I need to move the cursor to a particular position, in many cases, I would have to use the stylus; this defeats the purpose. If the x7510 had a joystick it would not be a problem, but it doesn't. FingerKeyboard2 does have arrows, but you would have to press two other keys to bring up the arrow keys.
- The second issue is related to the first: When filling a form on the screen, the keyboards often cover the entry fields. Because there are no readily accessible arrow keys, I often have to set aside the soft keyboard for either the hardware keyboard or the stock keyboard.
Any ideas on how to get round these issues, or is there a soft keyboard that addresses them?
