  • A customized version of the English layout (wider space button, long press for symbols, long-press symbols shown on each key, etc.)
  • A customized version of the English AZERTY layout (wider space button, long press for symbols, long-press symbols shown on each key, etc.)

The number row shows emojis in its 2nd/3rd pages.

The new keyboard layouts should work automatically after installation (you can choose them from Settings). However, if a layout doesn't show up, try one of the following options : 1) restart the device, 2) use Sailfish Utilities to restart Home Screen using Sailfish Utilities, or 3) from the terminal in developer mode, login as root (devel-su), then type : killall maliit-server
