It seems Xperia phones bypasses the Input Method when using USB keyboards. It's only Xperia users who have report this problem and only with USB keyboards.

I change Android on my Xperia neo, to 4.0.4 build 4.1.B.0.431 and everything is fine - works perfect about USB keyboard.

Tried to search for this. Found nothing so far.

How would I, for example, make the Windows home key on my bluetooth keyboard have a double function? Let's say I wanted that key to be HOME when normally pressed and SHOW NOTIFICATIONS when pressed with CTRL + first?

Btw, I just bought the pro version of this, and thank you for doing a great job!

Thought I might mention...I would also be interested to know if long-press functionality from buttons on the bluetooth keyboard is available with this app as well, aaaaannnd the ability to highlight text with SHIFT + arrow keys, copy/paste combos? Maybe most importantly - where can I go to read about the total functionality of this app?

Is there a way to go around this issue? I try to get the keyboard helper demo to work on my Sony Xperia U with Android 2.3.7 (6.0.B.3.162), the USB keyboard is connected via the Sony livedock and gets recognized with device id 131079 in debug mode. Keyboard helper is selected as active input method but the layout does not change to german.

Control + 1, 2 or whatever?
Is it possible to create a custom key map such as Control + 1 or Alt + E? I have tried but it doesn't seem to recognize combination mappings. My keyboard has a Fn, Alt, and Ctrl key. Seems like it should be possible.
