    hello,

    I added an international keyboard to the already existing English, and it works fine. But as I was experiment with the keyboard layout(there are 3 option) one has stuck and it won't change.

    I tried changing it from the Keyboard settings and from the international settings.

    i keep switching the Hardware Keyboard Layout so the Software keyboard Layout would change. But it doesn't.

    I deleted the whole keyboard (Edit-> delete) and switched it on again , no use.

    i restarted the iPad many times too. Its stuck to 1 layout. What to do?

    It would help if you stated which keyboard you are having trouble with.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "hardware layout." On my iPad, I only see one option for Arabic keyboard.

    See the attached file.

    I changed the layout from the 3 option at the bottom, but the change won't take affect

    Huh, I never noticed those options before!

    I'm trying various hardware layout options for various keyboards and can't find any option that seems to make a difference. I have no idea what this "hardware layout" is supposed to do!

    ETA: Found answer.
