A PocketCM Keyboard .23+ WVGA theme I made for the large of finger so you can worry just about what you want to say instead of trying to spend all your time pecking at each key and getting it right.

Features:
Virtual D-Pad
Long press on any letter to get uppercase.
Long press on almost any key for quick access to similar symbols.
Shift button is caps lock.
I made every key as large (tall (with big layout and wide)) as possible.
Has larger room for correction / allowed mistakes than standard keyboard to allow for less pickiness on large screen (WVGA).
Landscape finally works.
English qwerty.
Optimized as much as possible (including all images) for speed and size of theme.

Hold "!" for "!! "
Hold "?" for "?? "
Hold "," for ".com"
Hold "$" for "€"

Only bugs / quirks I'm currently aware of:
  • Not sure of what the height for landscape should be. (If you are using a full screen app (such as PocketCM) the current height is great, otherwise..it takes up pretty much the whole screen. Easy to change. Go to settings.ini, and change the last value from 27p to something more like 23p.)
  • Correction currently will not go through when any symbol is entered. Suggestion will go through only when the following are pressed immediately after a word is entered
    space
    !
    @

Based off Tene's dream theme, so looks are the same.

Credits to of course tene and and also zard for assistance with the virtual keys.
Credits also to MrHawaii of PPCGeeks for a few ideas.

UPDATE 3/16/2009 V1.11

Started over from scratch.
Removed "Hold space bar for ". " (period and double space)." temporarily until I hear further from Tene on how to make it work more correctly.
Made suggestion 19% more forgiving, allowing for 19% further displacement from correct key. Think that is the farthest I will go, though I can bump it up if requested.
Suggestion will currently (until I hear from tene on how to fix it) only go through on the following
space
!
@

UPDATE 3/11/2009 V1.1

Added:
Hold comma key for ".com"
Auto - double space inserted when period, exclamation mark, or question mark pressed.
Hold space bar for ". " (period and double space).

Fixed:
Correction now goes through even on ?!.,

(Isn't actually as blurry as it looks on the thumbnail)

Good to hear thx. Just re-uploaded, realized there was a small typo in the settings file, causing the "hold "!" for "!! " not to function.

That really all the information you're gonna give?

Lets have some details

What your default language is, what your screens resolution is (I'm not familiar enough w/ the omnia), what options you have selected in pcmk, a screenshot of the problem, what version of pcmk you are using, etc..

PocketCM Keyboard ver EN.023

Options in pcmk are @ default

actually the more I look at it Im going to guess it cant be moved as its stuck to the top of the text window.. would the adjustment of the last value in the setting.ini you mentioned above help this?

sorry for the lack of info prior..

tnx

Yep that's what's going to do it for you is just the height. I have it set for my device right now. The text box can't be moved / resized (except by tene), but if you lower the height of the whole keyboard then you should be good, I would recommend 24 or so.
