I recently switched from a Xperia Z to my new Nexus 5. So far so good, but I am really starting to get annoyed by the keyboard.
I am german speaking so the umlauts (äüö) are quite important to me.
The Problem is: on the xperia, on long press a u o, the corresponding umlaut was centered inside the popup (just like e.g. on the iPhone).
Now Google obviously thought that it might be a great idea on the stock keyboard to frigging use numbers, centered on o and u, and go for the ä centered on the a character.
This is extremely annoying. I constantly have to delete and retype the ö and ü character. I DONT need the damn number keys, if I do I press the modifier key.
Apart from that, the keyboard is great, so I would not want to switch to something like swiftkeys which works terrible on German dialects.
Is there a way to modify the virtual keyboard in a way so that there are other character centered inside the long press popup?
I was looking on the net for almost an hour now but couldn't find a hint.
