    Default Shift key

    Why does my shift key not appear to be working correctly. It appears to only do it in text messaging. I can not figure out if I have something wrong in settings.

    Mine sometimes works like it used to when hitting and releasing and typing a letter to capitalize. But other times I must hold the key down and type the letter to capitalize it. The latter is applying to this post. I don't know why it alternates between the two. It is annoying.

    To get mine to work. I had to goto System Settings>Language and Input>Physical Keybad and make Ompapd-Keypad default. If that doesn't work goto Manage Apps>ALL>Chrome and disable it.

    cthunder,
    I do not see that option. It has mapphone-switch which is set to English (us)- android keyboard. The other is omap4-keypad and it is set to English (us) - android keyboard. No option I can see for ompapd default. Chrome is not activated on my phone.

    I've noticed on certain web sites/apps it misbehaves, but on the more mainstream ones its fine. I think its something like 'multiple libraries exist' and not every site/app invokes the correct one...

    Did you do a factory reset/data wipe after your update? Also try clearing the cache in the Keyboard app.

    This may sound crazy, but give a try-it has worked for some people:
    Go to 'Manage Apps' and uninstall the Chrome updates.
    Reboot and see if it helped.

    If it did, disable automatic Chrome updates or Chrome entirely.

    It's an option under Settings > Apps(swipe to see All Apps) > look for the Asus keyboard

    In order for your keyboard to work properly:
    Go to Language & input
    Physical Keyboard
    omap4-Keypad
    Then check choose keyboard layout (Set up Keyboard Layout)
    Check the box on the right for English (US) Android Keyboard
    Your Keyboard will work like before this disaster Jellybean (Windows Me update nightmare reminder) .

    Well unfortunately that is what has been checked. Here is one thing that is going on. this symbol comes up when I hold shift and the colon key > the greater symbol. Not a major thing I guess. Thanks for the tip tho.

    So far this is working. We'll see over time. I hope this is the fix I've been needing.
