2.7 Beta Release Notes

  • Fixed long-press popups to correctly show lower case and upper case letters
  • Fixed several hardware keyboard bugs involving SPACEBAR, TAB, and ENTER keys, and correctly displaying non-English languages)
  • Removed license checks


I really appreciate the opportunity to test the app. So far I am loving it, and thank you for fixing the hardware keyboard bugs.

One question I have is, is there a way to install the keyboard layout I use on Keyman Desktop on to the Keyman android app. I ask because I am so use to the keyboard layout for the Amharic language (SIL Ethiopic 1.3) I use on my personal and work PC that when I come to use the app I have to remember the new layout.

Thank you for all the support you are giving us, and hope to hear from you.

Thanks a lot for your involvement. :slight_smile:

For the time being, you may not be able to do that, but it could be an option in the future.

Thank you for the prompt answer.
It would be great to have it in the future.
I also wanted to know is there a way to have a hot key to switch between languages when using an external keyboard?

Thank you again for your support.


Yes, you can use a key combo of Ctrl + Tab to switch between languages.

It’s working. Thank you
