Keypad expansion

I stumbled onto something I've not seen yet on the forum and didn't find in search.

 

I've always used the ?123 to alternate the keypad between letters and numbers/characters.  By chance I swiped upward while my finger was on the keypad and it expanded to include letters, characters, and numbers.  You just have to keep you finger on the screen and you can select anything.  As soon as you remove your finger whatever letter etc. was highlighted is entered and the keypad goes back to the compact mode.

 

It's new to me anyway :smileyhappy:  Hope it helps someone.

Just tried this. Good to know, takes a bit of fooling with the keypad. Found if you swipe up on the first line, it works, but you have to keep your finger on the nook, only thing bad, is that this allows you one hand to type with.

Yeah, I don't think it's good for a lot of typing, but for when you need to put a number or character among letters it's very convenient not to have to switch the keypads.

Re: Keypad expansion

This is something everyone should know about! It's so handy for typing in passwords that have letters as well as numbers/symbols. Thanks for the tip!
