Can I hide the underlying latin Character on the keytop?


On one of our keyboards the latin character in the top left of the keytop interferes with the way the character looks. Can we hide those characters?

Thank you,


From the Keyboard Editor --> On Screen tab
There’s a checkbox for “Display underlying layout characters”.

That setting seems to apply to both On screen and Touch layout.


@darcy is correct. Which reminds me … we need to split this flag out for touch layouts so we can control this per platform – e.g. on mobile phone devices you may want to hide the underlying key cap but on a tablet you might want to keep it, just for visual purposes. And realistically it should always be separate to the On Screen Keyboard setting … so that’s a feature update (Darcy, do you want to log this in GitHub?)


k, I’ve created issue for this.
