The problem you mention is an annoying one. But I’m not sure about solving it by taking up a slot on the suggestions row for (typed) or “typed” every time there is an auto-suggestion. The constant presence of that item is one of the things I hate about other keyboards. Is there any other way we could address this issue?
We are probably going to do this but have been trying to fully get the newly-introduced phone layouts fully settled and debugged first. Sorry about the delay.
For reference, we currently understand the main differences of Swiss German from German keyboard to be:
- Put French é,à,è in place of Ö,Ä,Ü
- Remove ß (or possibly put a special ‘ss’ key in place of it
- Add ç
- Largely different shifted number rowH. Kessler commented
In Switzerland you often write text including both german and french words. The difference between Swiss-German layout and Swiss-French layout is only at three keys: the Swiss-German variety has the German umlauts (ä, ö, ü) accessible without dead keys, while the Swiss-French version has the French accented characters (é, à, è) accessible in the unshifted state.
There is a big difference to the layout of Germany/Austria concerning all the shift characters. For example:
shift 3 = § at Germany, = * at Switzerland
shift 4 = $ at Germany, = ç at Switzerland
