I’m using Keyman Developer 184.108.40.206 on Windows to make a touch keyboard that I have been testing on my iPad Pro (2nd Gen) running iOS 14.2.
I have been trying to add a TAB key to the touch layout. It is used in the US English keyboard on iOS and I’d like to keep close to that for familiarity, and having a TAB key can be useful.
I add the key as a “Special” key, with the code “K_TAB” and the text Tab. It looks great. However, it does nothing. When pressed, no tab appears. I’ve tried changing “K_TAB” to “U_0009”, but this is rejected as an illegal key code by the compiler.
Is there some way to get a functional TAB key in touch layouts? I’ve looked through the documentation and can’t find anything to suggest another way of doing it, or to say it is not permitted.
