Show Underlying

Since the default layout for Keyman keyboard projects is US QWERTY, it means that “show underlying” will always show the same layout no matter the language or keyboard.

What if something was done to make “show underlying” to show the character on the primary long press button rather than repeat the US layout which is already obvious and doesn’t help the user, though it may help the developer at keyboard the development stage?

See feat(developer,web): support "hint" property for touch layouts · Issue #5079 · keymanapp/keyman · GitHub. Due to be implemented in 15.0 :slight_smile:
