Add A Tab Button To The Keyboard

Nov 10, 2010

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.

Keyboard Dock's Secret Button

Feb 20, 2010

Why is there a blank button on the iPad Keyboard Dock?

Here is a list of the buttons:

1. Home
2. Search
3. Brightness-down
4. Brightness-up
5. Photo album
6. Keyboard toggle
8. Skip-back
9. Play/pause
10. Skip-forward
11. Mute
12. Volume-up
13. Volume-down
14. Lock screen

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!

Unable To Find A Tab Button On The Keyboard?

Sep 12, 2010

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.

Undo Button On The Numerical Keyboard Is Fail

It's gigantic first of all. And if you hit it, you're f*k'd. You can't undo accidentally hitting the giant undo button.

is this a joke? Reminds me of that one web guy vs the sales guy skit where the recompute hash key is giant and ruins the whole network.

Is this an apple ode to that video or what?

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?

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.

Rotate Button Confusion Acts Like Mute Button?

Dec 5, 2010

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?

The Sleep / Wake Button Or Lock / Unlock Button?

Jul 31, 2010

You know, that button on the top right edge of your iPad. Apple calls it the Sleep/Wake button.

So given this name, one would assume that pressing it would put the iPad to sleep and pressing it again would wake it up.


According to Apple, pressing this button does not put the iPad to sleep, it locks it and pressing it again unlocks it! The same button is also used to turn the iPad off and then on again.

I mean c'mon! When you are tired and put your jammies on and go to bed, you don't go to lock, you go to sleep! And in the morning when the alarm clock goes off, you don't unlock, you wake up!

So why don't they just call it the Lock/Unlock button???

Work Of Special Keys Of Keyboard Dock On Normal Keyboard

Just came across this free app in the App Store. It gives you a keyboard with numbers. And letters all available without switching. You can only use it inside it's own app but the copy all button allows you to copy and paste into any other app really easily. One thing worth noting, when you press copy all button there is no indication that anything has been copied........but it has!

It would appear that if you have your IPAD in a keyboard docking station and you have a wireless keyboard nearby, the keyboard in the docking station exhibts unstable behavior, specficially: o keys will repeat without the key being held down o cap lock light will not light. Disabling the wireless keyboard (removing the batteries for example) seems to resolve the issue.

Is there a way to access the iPad keyboard while using the apple blutooth keyboard without pressing a button on the Bluetooth keyboard?

The only way I can figure out how to do it is to turn off my blutooth. Is there a setting on the iPad 2 or command/swipe that will bring up the onscreen keyboard?

I can't seem to locate the replacement case that I want in time for my next international trip (EDI on 5/31) so was wondering what I would lose to turn in the keyboard dock for the regular wireless keyboard. My primary question is about specific iPad buttons and shortcuts that work with the keyboard dock but not the wireless keyboard.

Everything was great until I paired a new Apple aluminum bluetooth keyboard with my iPad. It worked fantastically and I really like the setup, except for one problem. When I try to use the on-screen keyboard now, sometimes it won't come up. The only way I can get the on-screen keyboard to come up is if I first push the upper-right key on the bluetooth keyboard. This has been a big problem when I don't carry the bluetooth keyboard with me.

Virtual Keyboard Is Easier Than Tactile Keyboard

Aug 18, 2010

I hear people complain a lot about iPad's virtual keyboard or I hear them say that the keyboard dock is necessary for typing longer documents. I actually find iPad's virtual keyboard easier to type on than a tactile keyboard, and I was wondering if I'm the only one.I often see people typing in landscape mode on their iPad with only one finger. Why not just type the correct way as you would on a tactile keyboard? That's the way I type and my typing is faster on the virtual keyboard. I think it's easier and faster because 1) I don't have to press down on each key, just lightly and quickly tap my fingers on the screen, and 2) iOS corrects and auto-capitalizes so many words that I save time by not needing to hold down shift keys or enter periods or apostrophes all the time.

Forcing Virtual Keyboard To Come Up Instead Of Physical Keyboard

Apr 10, 2010

I have a bluetooth keyboard working with my iPad (in fact, I'm typing up this message with it now). But I took my iPad to another room, and when I went to a text area to type, it still thought I was connected to my bluetooth keyboard. Needless to say, I couldn't type, and so I had to turn off my Bluetooth in order to bring the virtual keyboard back up again.

Is there a way to tell the iPad to bring up the virtual keyboard, even if the bluetooth one is currently connected?
