Text entering on gamepad
« on: October 20, 2015, 06:50:04 am »
Well I've been playing some games with the gamepad but when it comes to entering text it's very inconvenient to press the keyboard button and type.
Hope a keyboard that pops up when you need it would be added.

You can select in the gesture menu a command to bring out the stock keypad. Or create a custom one to show when you do a specific gesture. I think 4 or 5 finger swipe up is a nice gesture to use to bring out the stock keyboard.

is there a different way that this could be done that you think would work better? I always like new ideas. =)

Well thanks for the tip but the gamepad always stays in front of the keyboard so i cant type some characters and i have to move the keyboard.
