I was looking at the layout of the keyboard on the ipad, and while it's useful to have the "go to #" button on both the left and right hand sides, the buttons themselves could be smaller. With the extra space, a tab button (more on the lefthand side) would be really useful when word processing.
So I use my iPad a lot for taking notes in class but there is no tab key which makes outlines annoying. Are there any third party keyboards you can get for iPad. I know on my iPhone I could add emoji keyboard that added a button to keyboard. Are there any extra keyboard for iPad that have a tab button. Non jail broken.
I just bought my first IPad and am learning about it. How do I write letters separately from email and store them? Secondly I bought a wireless keyboard at the same time. I cannot locate the on/off button for the keyboard.
Ok, so my MBP has no blank function keys. My Apple aluminum wired keyboard has two, F5 and F6, which are taken up by the keyboard backlight controls on my MBP. F5 and F6 still exist because programs use them for shortcuts. But what about the iPad? What can it do on there? Well it seems like there is nothing in the SDK for it. So why even make a button at all? Won't that confuse people--it seems unlike Apple to put something useless on their keyboard. The button doesn't do anything, at least not yet.
As some of you may know, I'm the guy who for weeks has been saying that Apple will implement a dashboard on the iPad, be it secretively in March or for certain in OS 4.0. The iPad demo lacked many widget-like apps, like weather, stocks, even a calculator among others! But you can read more about that here.
So this morning I got to thinking about the iPad keyboard. Certainly Apple would have a key for it on their official iPad dock. Was there some clue on the keyboard? So I googled and found high resolution images on iLounge and spotted the missing button. And guess where it is? Right about where the dashboard button is on a mac. Again, on my Apple aluminum wired keyboard, there is dashboard, blank F5, blank F6, and skip-back. On the iPad, it is keyboard hide, BLANK, and skip-back. The only key with a specific function on an Apple keyboard before skip-back is dashboard, and on the iPad the blank button is right before skip-back. Coincidence? Seems unlikely.
So I want to know what you guys think. Sound off in the comments and let me know!
How come we don't have a tab button onnthe keyboard? If anyone has a tip that I don't know about please let me know. It's getting quite annoying when filling out forms on this thing. You have to keep touching the next field you want to type in. They could make the return button smaller and put a small tab button to the left of the A button.
I changed the batteries of my wireless keyboard when they became too low. Afterwards whenever I started to use it the letter q appeared from nowhere as if it was pressed like that: qqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqqq. Needless to say the key was not pressed.
BT Keyboard Off - Press Eject Button But Cannot Revert Back ?
Apr 20, 2010
Is there any quick and easy way to disconnect your BT keyboard from your iPad short of turning BT off in services? I tried the eject button but that doesn't seem to revert you back to the onscreen keyboard if you are still in BT range. I also tried turning keyboard off and that didn't help, iPad still thinks it is connected and won't pull up onscreen. The only thing I've found that works is going to Settings and turning BT off.
Keyboard Dock & Apple Cover - Button Back To Connector
Jul 17, 2010
Has anyone else noticed that you can't put your iPad onto the keyboard dock when it's in the Apple iPad cover? I was hoping that it would work, but the cover is just thick enough to prevent the iPad from going down onto the connector. It's rather a pain to take the iPad out of the cover because it does not slide at all well...the cover has almost a rubbery type feel to it which makes sliding difficult (which in most cases is a good thing!) By the way, I don't mean trying to put the iPad on the dock with the front case cover folded around the back...I tried with the cover just opened up to the side. Has anyone made a cutout on the bottom back so that it will fit down onto the connector?

Dec 1, 2010
can someone point me in the direction of a solutions list for the myriad of bugs and changes that have been implemented with iOS 4.2?Issues include but are not limited to:
nScreen lock button becoming a mute butto - at times doesn't even truly mute App links not working Data entry difficulties Reduced battery life 3G not working properly.
I am sure that other people have asked all of these questions however surely this release deserves a category of its own where people can quickly access this information? At the rate topics are posted on here it will be faster for me to wait for the next OS than look for answers to these faults.
Information: iPad iOS 4 27" Mac, 2 iPhones, 2 iPads, 5 Mac Pros in my company office
Maybe I missed something from the notes on the last operating system update. But I've noticed now that my IPad screen lock switch now is acting like a mute button. So sliding the switch doesn't not prevent the screen from rotating with acceleration / gravity, it simply mutes the sound. The "anti rotate" symbol no longer appears, instead a mute on/off symbol appears when the switch is activated. Have I overlooked some setting, or is it just broken?
