- shift-left/right to move at begining/end of the entry

This keyboard can be called anywhere, from program editing or note screen, on input screen... you can type a new text but not edit existing program for example.
an idea can add more options to the keyboard, inspiration from the following image

Thank you for your post.
The reason why I didn't propose qwerty layout is because of button size.
My goal was to propose widest buttons as possible (for user confort).
The 26 letters fit in 3 rows of 9 buttons.

but it's not possible to fit a qwerty layout in a 3x9 grid. (the 2 first rows need 10 buttons).
primer I really liked your program... I just found that... when using the dark mode... the letters you type are almost invisible, and the cursor (arrow) disappears. Other than that it is a great and useful program.[attachment=4744]
