Split keyboard: major UI flaw

    On some websites when entering a text field said text field is covered by the split keyboard interface. I know you can change the position of the interface by scrolling on the site itself, but sometimes this doesn't suffice and as a result the keyboard interface blocks the text you're inputting.

    This is terribly offputting. Am I doing something wrong?

    You can slide the keyboard up and down the screen too if that helps.

    I don't quite get it. What's wrong with dragging the keyboard from the very last bottom right button?

    Now all we need is a way to change the split keyboard back from purple to grey.

    I wish they had a full keyboard the size of the split keys that can be dragged around. It would be so much better that way IMO

    If you drag the keyboard, it splits. Move it around and then just put it together, and voila: there you have the full size keyboard you can move wherever you want.

    You don't even haves to split the keyboard first. Just press and hold the keyboard icon until the menu pops up, select "undock," and now you can slide the keyboard up and down.

    I want something the size of the split keyboard keys and not the full keyboard. It takes up a lot of space.

    Something like this

    The reason I can't use the split keyboard is because the split keys are too small. I guess theyre trying to accommodate tiny lady fingers but I've got giant Atari thumbs so I'd like the keys just a little bigger. Oh, and also a number row. :)

    I like the split keyboard but I also wish the keys were bigger.
