        The suggestion is to replace some of the Greek, mathematical, and other symbols on the Opted layout on iPhone with standard punctuation characters, so, for example, you don’t need Opt and Shift to get the secondary symbols under K and L in the US English layout.

        Please vote for this issue if you would like this, thanks!

          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!

            We already offer swipe UP for access to shifted variant on the symbol keys. Are you saying you would like this on letters as well, or that you’d prefer down to up?

            As far as keycap font, we’ll offer a “small-label” theme if enough users are interested, just like the current “bold” theme provides a way to have bold keycaps.

            I think what they meant was that the original iOS keyboard acts on swipe down gestures and it was confusing.

            But I think swipe-up is just right for shifted characters, although swipe-up for letters would be interesting too but without labels of course.

            Maybe a swipe-down for option-key behavior would be useful as well.
            for fast input of:
            - _ @ £ € [ ] < > : = ' ...etc. (depending on layout)
            The symbol-keys could have small light-colored (grey) labels in the lower right corner for the option character if that's not too much chaos.

                What you are saying makes sense, and would not be hard to implement. However the trick is to keep the configuration simple for the user. It starts to feel clunky when you are having to select layout and language separately.

                One idea might be to have an “freeze layout” switch which if unset (the default) leaves behavior as now. If it IS set, that layout stays unchanged, and only the language changes when selecting by the regular mechanism (either quick-switch or from list in settings).
