  1. Hide PadKeys topbar with autocorrect on

    I like to use autocorrect to make sure I get spelling correct but I don't always need predictive text and I'm a fan of the built-in topbar.
    Would it be possible to add an option to hide the PadKeys topbar without disabling autocorrect? Also, a switch for swipe input would be good, not that it activates by accident but it'd be nice to have that as an option.

      We will add this as an additional autocorrect level setting, “Corrections only”, as opposed to the current “Suggestions only”.

    • Replace word that cursor is in, rather than split the word

      Firstly thanks for creating the first grown up keyboard for an iPad.

      Right now if you position the cursor in the middle of a mispelt word the keyboard proposes words based on the first part of the word and when you select one it splits the original word into two, replacing the first part of the word with the new one. It would be better if it considered the whole word and replaced the whole word with the new one, like most other 3rd party keyboards do. This could either be a standard feature or an option of you think…

        Thank you for the suggestion. It makes sense and we will schedule it for a future release.

        (I hadn’t realized third-party keyboards did things this way, probably because it’s difficult to end up in the middle of a word without cursor keys.)

        UPDATE: We haven’t implemented this yet mainly because we haven’t found any other keyboards / autocorrect implementations that work this way, and we’re worried it will clash with most users’ expectations. If anyone has any examples to point out to us, that might help. Thanks!
