If I leave my onscreen keyboard on, the keys type by themselves. I have to keep restarting my iPad. Is there a way to calibrate the iPad? If I do the soft reset, will it delete all my apps, music, etc?
Doing a lot of PhotoShop work at the moment, i've need to utilize a larger display. I've therefore had to put my laptop to the side an connect a larger display to use primarily.
Now (noting i'm on PC), I have a mouse but not a standard USB keyboard. Is there a way I can utilize the iPad's soft keyboard to type on my PC? I remember using an iPhone app once to do this, but never seen it done on iPad
I've been searching all around, but I just cannot find an app that I am dying for.
I have an old X-Keys that is great, but not as customizable as I'd like. I thought for sure there would be an app on the iPad that could replace it.
An app where you can define buttons on the iPad (in pages, or sorted in whatever way), so that when you hit them, they run a command on the mac. This could be a keypress, a series of keypresses, a AppleScript, an Automator script, iTunes...whatever.
This is somewhat doable using TouchOSC and OSCulator, but as far as keyboard commands, OSCulator only supports a single keypress or key command, so I can't program one to type "Graphic" for instance, without going through some pain. This is an example from TouchOSC.
Has anyone heard of an app that does this? If I knew how to code apps, I'd make this in a heartbeat, and then retire in the mountains.
I've now had my iPad 2 for a week and overall I'm very pleased with it. Besides my gripe with Apple for not including wireless synching (something I've discussed in detail in other threads, so I won't tread there again) my only issue is with the keyboard. Now, I consider myself a fairly quick typist and I find the keyboard, while generally good, misses letters while I try to type. I assume this is a responsiveness issue. Is there a way to improve the keyboard so that I don't have to slow my typing?
Since the recent software upgrade this week, my pop-up keyboard gets in the way when I try to type low down on the screen. I've had every generation of iPad and this didn't happen before, because the screen would move up, keeping the typing from being hidden behind the keyboard. Now if I move it up manually it slides back down. It's happening in several different apps and in some cases (e.g. In Keynote) makes it all but impossible to type anything.What changed and how can I fix it? Please don't tell me to buy an external keyboard, I like doing all my typing on the screen and I'm hoping it's just some setting I've inadvertently changed.
I came across an image online of an iPad docked, and a wireless keyboard. I've never seen this DOCK before, nor have I seen this type of Wireless Keyboard. It looks like it has a trackpad on the far right side. Just curious if anyone knows of these products, and if so, anymore information? Links?
I just bought a brand-new iPad keyboard dock, and guess what... It doesn't work! I try to plug it in, and the iPad wobbles around and doesn't let me type at all! And in the Apple Case, and this is worst of all, I can't even get it to connect! In fact, I think this dock might have ruined my connector permanently, because now it takes at least two or three tries to make my iPad sync to my PC! Note that all I'm using is FIRST PARTY ACCESSORIES here! Don't you think a company like Apple should have made sure it's accessories actually WORKED?!?!
when I'm typing something some characters don't show, it's not any particular letter or number but it does happen frequently. For example, if I type "word" it may show as "ord". At first I thought I was just not actually touching the particular character that didn't show o I started (note: the word just before I in this sentence is SUPPOSED to be so but only the o is showing- that's exactly what I'm talking about!!) has anyone else had this issue with the iPad 3?
It happens when I get near that bottom of the yellow notepad and a lot when I want to type in a comment box. Sometimes I can manage by typing a short comment in the notepad, then copy it and manipulate the ipad so that there is a little space to paste my comment.
Is there any way I can scroll the notepad up so that I can make a note longer than about 3/4 of the page, and/or move the keyboard out of the way? All I know about the keyboard is how to split it. Can I make it smaller. And why won't that yellow notepad scroll up?
just purchased a dock and wifi keyboard for my 64gb ipad today. the apple wifi keyboard didn't give any hassles when connecting via bluetooth but it doesn't type the correct keys. for instance, the q and the a are reversed, and i can't for the life of me get it to enter @, which means this thing is unusable. purchased the ipad, dock, and keyboard from best buy whom i despise and am worried they'll give me a runaround when i attempt to return the keyboard. can't wait for apple to build a store in south bend / mishawaka. Information: Mac Mini Mac OS X (10.6.4) 2.5ghz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4gb 667mhz DDR2 SDRAM, 500gb 7200rpm hd w/ 16mb cache.
MY iPad Air will not pair with my Belkin Qode thin type keyboard. I used to have no problems, then connection became intermittent, then it failed altogether. Belkin replaced the keyboard but the new keyboard will not pair with the iPad at all. I've shut down and re-started the iPad but that makes no difference.
I've got an Ipad 4 and I am experiencing an annoying issue. When I share a picture by email, the new mail window pops-up with the picture attached, and that's fine. I start typing the text of the email, the keyboard response is very slow. On other circumstances the keyboard works fine.
I was going to purchase an iPad, partly for the fun factor and partly for a very portable solution to access my work desktop when I travel via a remote desktop program we use. It worked fine in fooling around with it in an Apple store, with one excpetion. We use the * key a lot in my work, so using the iPad keyboard would now require shuttling back and forth between 3 keyboard pages, the numbers page, the letters page, and the special characters page. I could not get used to this, it was simply too awkward and way too slow.
My question is, do you think purchasing the Apple Bluetooth keyboard would settle this issue, and is a reasonable compromise? I very much want the iPad for all the other obvious reasons that everybody loves theirs, but am wondering if purchasing the keyboard for travel takes away the portability attraction and if it would then be better to bite the bullet and spend a few hundred more for the Macbook Air 11.6? I would never use the keyboard at home as I use my desktop to work from home and not the iPad, so it would only be when I travel(not that much, perhaps 4 to 5 times a year)
I haven't used an iPad yet, and I'm rather curious How does the on-screen keyboard work? Is it easy to use?For some reason, when I think about it, I find the concept of the onscreen keyboard rather inconvenient:For example:1) You have to put the iPad down to comfortably type on it with both hands...2) If you put it down, most likely you will be putting the iPad down on a completely flat, horizontal surface (e.g. on a table or on your legs)3) Because you have to put it down on a flat surface, you have to bend your neck downward and stare down all the time to see what's on the screen (Ahhh!!! back problems
