    so ive seen on this forum that many of you have gotten the new logitech keyboard.
    beeing from northern europe without any Best buy for thousands of miles ill have to wait for logitech to ship their own ****.
    anyway, i have a basic text editing q. ill be using the keyboard with quick office HD for ipad. Does the shortcuts for bold, underlined and italic (typically CTRL+B in windows) work. also other micros like enlarging text zooming copy/paste hotkeys etc.
    and also. how small are the keys really?

    thanks for answers ;)

    I can say that the Mac shortcuts like Copy, Paste, Cut work just fine.

    The key's are smaller, but if you type for a bit on it I think it is easy to adapt to the size. I'm typing this on the keyboard now. I've only used it for a day and I'm typing just as fast as I do on my Air keyboard.

    I find the keyboard to be an interesting idea, I'm going to try using one for a couple of weeks and see how I like the combo.

    Great news...

    I don't think the ZAGGfolio BT keyboard has these shortcuts available, which really is a pity if this is so.

    But I didn't think that the Locitech had these shortcuts either, so that is great news of that is the case. Are you certain? And that the Solar model has these shortcuts, does that mean that the Ultra Thin model also has these shortcuts?

    Yeah the "Command" key plus C, V, X, Z type of shortcuts work just fine.

    One more question...

    Do the shortcuts work with Pages for iPad with a Logitech BT keyboard (Solar or Ultra Thin)? Or do you use another text editor?

    Yes.

    Also works in Mail, iMessage, Safari, Notes, and many other Apps. It seems to be built into the OS.

    a part question from the beginning. Does "bold,italic and underline" work? in text editors like f.ex quickoffice pro HD
    typically cmd+b , cmd+u , cmd i

    and also text enlarging typically ( cmd+ + ) or cmd + - for smaller

    Sorry to bring up an old thread but I am having a hard time finding this answer too. Hopefully when my my logitech ultrathin keyboard comes in, I will be able to test this out

    Some command key combinations work and some do not. Command-C, Command-A, Command-X and Command-Z work in Office2 HD. Command-B and Command-I do not. For those, you have to tap on the Bold or Italicize at the top of the screen in Office2 HD.
