How can we make PadKeys better?

Paste button location!

It incredible how some people have very large hands & fingers !

Back space is a very frequently used key.

So if were not accidentally hitting the " ] " key were hitting the paste button key.

Any chance you could reposition it on the right side of the undo key?

Or all together be able to switch/move the undo redo paste buttons to the left side of the keyboard ?

As in leaving blank the space that the paste button currently occupies.

So we could avoid all together hitting the " ] " by tapping the top part of the backspace key.

The reason for this is when we delete, we're looking at what's being deleted an not the backspace key its self !

Does that make sense ?

    We will consider this, but such a change can have pros and cons. Moving the buttons to the left side may cause interference when trying to select or suppress the top word suggestion.

    UPDATE: We ended up implementing a different solution in the 4.1.1 release. We swapped the paste button to the left of undo/redo. Redo is rarely enabled (only just after an undo) so this should make the problem less likely to occur.

        I’m using iPad sometimes in landscape sometimes in portrait mode.

        This happens when I do a lot of typing and then do re-editing.

        Which is often !

        Thank you for the consideration !

        Manage as a preference on/off alternative "Switch keys from right to left side". That way the end user decides. 😁

        If keys are located on the left side a spacer "|" between the function keys and the word suggestions might come in handy !
