New Long-Press Option not Showing

Heya! I’m working on updating the fv_nsilxcen keyboard and have run into issues adding a third long-press option.

I have added an option for ‘č̓’ as a long-press option in the touch layout (T_C_2 on default and shift layers) and layout tabs, but they aren’t showing up when I install the keyboard for testing.

I double checked in the touch layout file, and the keys are showing there.

I’ve removed and re-added the new long-press option, saved and recompiled several times, restarted my computer and made sure that Keyman is up to date. Other changes that I’ve made are working fine, so not sure what’s up with this one specifically! I thought I saw someone report a similar issue recently but I wasn’t able to find it.

I’m restricted to only one screenshot as a new user, but I’m happy to provide more as needed. Thanks in advance for your help!

Welcome to the community, @HopsAndHops!

I have look into the issue that you have with č̓ not appearing after you add it in long-press option, touch layout. It doesn’t appear because there’s no rule of it in Layout tab. You can go to Layout tab and add these 2 lines:

  • [SHIFT T_C_2] > ‘Č̓’ layer(‘default’)
  • [T_C_2] > ‘č̓’

č̓ will appear in default and shift layers (as shown below).

I hope this could help.

Have a nice day!

Hi @Nguonnyny_Tan ! I believe you looked at version 9.2 that’s currently available. I’m working on version 9.3 on this branch: keyboards/release/fv/fv_nsilxcen/source at fv_nsilxcen · First-Peoples-Cultural-Council/keyboards ( . The rules for [SHIFT T_C_2] and [T_C_2] exist in the .kmn file and can be seen in the mobile layout file.

The issue I’m having is despite these rules being added, the long press option is not appearing.


Hi again @HopsAndHops,

I have look into the keyboard version 9.3 that you mentioned above. I found that the character č̓ was added on the tablet platform only so it won’t appear when you test it on mobile devices. You can go ahead and add it on phone platform on both layout. You can also delete the tablet platform if you don’t need it.

Let me know how it goes!
