Motorola Droid 2 :: No Landscape Mode When Not Using Keyboard

Nov 12, 2010

I got my Droid 2 (or as it is called in Germany Milestone 2) just this week. I got two minor things that are bugging me. (see the other one here Is it possible to reconfigure the keyboard?) Otherwise I'm loving my new phone. I got the auto-adjust option for the Display turned on but for some reason the screen won't switch to the landscape mode as long as I don't pull out the physical keyboard. That is only the case for the homescreens and the main app menu. Otherwise it works fine. For example, if I open the settings I get to look at them in landscape mode with the keyboard in our out.

Motorola Droid :: Landscape Mode While Physical Keyboard Stored?

Nov 11, 2009

I cant get the browser to automatically change orientation as I change my phone's orientation. The only time it goes into landscape mode is if I pull out the physical keyboard. Note that I don't want to select The option to always force landscape mode.

HTC Droid Eris :: Minimize Keyboard Button In Landscape Mode?

May 26, 2010

So the "minimize keyboard" button in the lower left of the landscape qwerty keyboard works maybe every 5th time. I only started noticing this after the 2.1 OTA. However my wife has the 2.1 on her Eris as well and hers works perfectly. If I make sure to push the very top edge of the button, it works fine, but just pressing it normally in the middle rarely works. Perhaps there is something wrong with that corner if the screen.

Motorola Droid X :: APP - ROOT - Keyboard - Keyboard Manager - Dual Keyboard - Portrait - Landscape Switch

Nov 10, 2010

I tried it and it works so far.

Dev = ne0fhyk from XDA.

From the XDA forum: Link to app page = [APP][ROOT/Keyboard] Keyboard Manager - Dual keyboard: Portrait/landscape switch - xda-developers

Verbage:

Keyboard Manager allows you to customize what keyboard (input method) appear on input based on your phone orientation.
It displays the keyboards you have enabled on your android device, and let you select one per orientation (landscape/portrait).
As your phone switch orientation, the app automatically switch the keyboard.

Requirements:
- Rooted android device (app was tested on Samsung captivate 2.1)
- Root Explorer app, or similar app that allows you to edit the permissions of a file.

To install:
1- Download the app (KeyboardManager.apk) on your device sdcard.
2- Using Root Explorer, move the apk file to /system/app
3- Using Root Explorer, edit the file permissions like below:
-- User: 'Read/Write' checked
--Group: 'Read' checked
--Others: 'Read' checked
4- Exit Root Explorer

The app should be visible in your launcher as 'Keyboard Manager'

Update:
- Added option to disable notification icon
-' start on boot' feature is disabled because it's not yet complete and tested... Sorry for the confusion

Bugs:
-On certain applications (i.e: Messaging on Samsung Captivate), the input window occasionally freeze on orientation switch. Exiting the app, and resuming should fix it.

The app is still in development.

HTC Incredible :: No Keyboard In Landscape Mode

Apr 29, 2010

I just bought my android incredible today and I'm absolutely addicted to it. However, I ran into a problem today with my phone that makes me wonder if it's something minor that I can fix on my own or if it has to be taken in. You know when you tilt your phone longways the display changes as well so you have a bigger keyboard? Well, mine's not doing it now and I'm wondering what the problem is.

HTC Incredible :: Browser And Keyboard Not Switching To Landscape Mode

May 25, 2010

Had the phone about 30 hours or so, been happily learning the ins and outs of my first android. Was streaming Pandora for a couple hours while working, then went to type a text and the full size landscape qwerty wouldn't come up only that aweful portrait mode cramped keyboard that makes me feel like I am typing on a blackberry now the browser won't switch to landscape either which is 'incredibly' annoying. Teeter seems to work fine, on level 19 and also "Bubble" an app for Leveling which switches to landscape in either direction.

Samsung Moment :: Physical Keyboard Opened In Landscape Mode

Feb 6, 2010

When opening the physical keyboard, the phone first comes out of sleep, and then switches from portrait to landscape. This is typically not too noticeable, but sometimes it takes up to 5 seconds. Is there a way to make it so that opening the keyboard just resumes this phone already in landscape? Also, has anyone figured out a way to get the home screen to respect switching to landscape when rotated, like all well-developed apps do?

HTC Hero :: Soft Keyboard Does Not Go Into Landscape Mode When Phone Is Orientated

Feb 18, 2010

I would've been happy as a passive forum user and keeping up with other's posts but my Hero has recently developed a problem, prompting me to sign up and get some advice from you guys who have more experience.

Basically in the last couple of days my soft keyboard has randomly decided to change how it displays and works! 3 main problems:

- sometimes soft keyboard does not go into landscape mode when phone is orientated (seen suggestions on here of calibrating keyboard and installing bubble and running the bubble clibration: tried both of these but has not solved problem).

- when phone does decide to let me in landscape mode no text is displayed as you type....only when you switch back to portrait do you see what you have typed

- when in text message mode the predictive text box has moved and is now being overlayed on the text message body, so basically i cannot see what i am typing! (the predictive text box used to be displayed above the text message body). This problem is the most annoying out of the two!

Android :: Soft Keyboard Not Open On Custom View In Landscape Mode?

Dec 14, 2009

I've been experimenting with the IMM and it's mostly straightforward, but for some reason, my custom view that launches the soft keyboard works only in portrait mode. Launching it is easy enough:
InputMethodManager imm = (InputMethodManager)getContext().getSystemService(Context.INPUT_METHOD_SERVICE);
imm.toggleSoftInputFromWindow(getWindowToken(), InputMethodManager.SHOW_IMPLICIT, 0);

I've seen a couple notes about the soft keyboard only working in portrait but I assume this was a limitation in a previous version, since all the Android EditText views work fine in both portrait and landscape. Is there some additional piece of work needed to enable landscape?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Android Keyboard Response - Landscape And Portrait Mode

Sep 2, 2010

I am having a lot of difficulty with my keyboard in both landscape and portrait. I am using the "Android Keyboard" that came with the phone. Examples of what I am referring to:

1. Wrong Key Showing: I type one letter and a different one is actually displayed.
2. Horrible Response: I get half way through an email and realize I need to fix an error in the middle of the paragraph. Trying to get the cursor where I want it a extremely hard to do and often it will move, but not where it is suppose to be moved to. Other times the cursor simply doesn't move at all and I have to erase all the back to where the error is and than retype. And no the cut and paste or copy and paste do not work since the cursor is not moving.
3. Random sentences just erase: I will be typing and hit the back key to erase a character, but instead it erases a line or two and won't stop.

Suggestions and no I am not going to root and void the warranty.

Motorola Droid :: Do You Use Landscape Or Portrait Mode?

Jan 22, 2010

Do you use landscape or portrait mode? And which keyboard do you use to post, virtual or real, since the virtual one hides the screen for some reason? I posted this from my Droid, just to prove to myself that I could real keyboard, big hands no problemo. Few typos, but easily fixed. No worse than I do on a life-size keyboard at home.Droid looks to be about the size of a busines card next to my big thumb. I can still somehow peck the keys fairly quick.

Motorola Droid :: Typing In Portrait Vs Landscape Mode

Dec 9, 2009

I discovered something unusual today. I've been using a lot of the physical keyboard, especially for long winded texts and e-mails. I have tried and tried to get used to the landscape on-screen keyboard to no avail. I've tried Better Keyboard (and yes, it's better), and the HTC keyboard (that unfortunately doesn't fill the screen). They both have their benefits, but I cannot accurately and consistently type out a message on any of them. My problems: If I type too fast, half of the letters don't register. I've tried pressing harder, using a lighter touch, neither had any affect. I can't get used to the position I need to have my thumb in to actually register clicking certain letters on the keyboard. I always think I've got it, but then I look up at what I just typed (I find myself staring at the keys I'm pressing to make sure they're the right ones) and it is complete gibberish. Where I'm going with this, anyways, is the portrait keyboard. I used it a few times today just out of laziness, I didn't feel like turning the screen or opening up the device to use the physical. I noticed something unusual; I don't make the same mistakes on this tiny little keyboard, and I can actually type relatively quickly. My sentences weren't coming out meaningless, and I wasn't seeing unregistered presses. So my question to you is this - has anybody else noticed similar problems? I don't really think it's a fault of the phone. I think I'm just not used to on-screen keyboards (never used one before) and thus cannot type well on it. I'm hoping that - at some point - a multi-touch enabled keyboard comes out, because I feel like some of my problems are due to hitting two keys in rapid succession, and having one or both not register. Until then, I will continue to practice with it, but I just can't figure out why I can type on the tiny portrait keyboard and not on the full landscape version.

Motorola Droid :: An App Or A Game Needs A D-pad But Doesn't Support The Landscape Mode?

Dec 20, 2009

As we all know the droid's d-pad is located under the screen on the slider. I just wonder has anyone ever come to a situation where an app or a game needs a d-pad, but doesn't support the landscape mode, so you have no choice but to use the phone in portrait with the slider open.
and in that case would the "up" button(in landscape mode) become the "right" button, or does it still recognize it as an UP button? Is it comfortable to hold the phone that way?
I could imagine some games that are designed for the Hero/magic would require you to use the d-pad/trackball.
