    Default Samsung Galaxy S4 Keyboard Problem

    After updating to Kitkat, my Samsung keyboard doesn't allow me to replace customizable key with a punctuation mark (i.e. "?" mark)
    Does anyone else have this problem?

    Welcome to the forums!
    I'm not sure I understand your issue. Could you explain a little more so I can try to help you.

    Thanks!

    You used to replace the Customizable button (between Space and Sym buttons) to a punctuation mark. You could keep pressing the customizable button and change its function (as you can see in the help file on the first picture). However, I am missing this after updating to KitKat. I am wondering if anyone else has the same issue? I reset my keyboard and no luck.

    Oh yes, I get you. That happened on my Sprint GS4 on an update before getting KitKat actually.
    I don't miss it, but I guess others would. Sorry but Samsung is most likely responsible for that one.

    I really miss that. I used to use it for "?" . Now I have to go to symbol and type "?" or have to keep the "." key so the "?" shows up. Makes it way slower to type.
    Funny enough, the help file still says you can change the customizable key to punctuation marks

    Oh wow, that's odd. I am wondering why mine doesn't have that. What model of S4 you got? Mine is SGH I337M.

    Mine is the Sprint version: SPH-L720.
    They're different versions but the keyboard is from Samsung so I don't see why it should be any different.
    I also have Android 4.4.2

    That globe is just a quick way to change the language; I have the keyboard in Spanish and English.

    Have you tried the Google keyboard?
    I really like it, and actually use it with my Galaxy Tab 3. But on my GS4 I rather use the stock Samsung KB because the easy access to the numbers and the main reason is the emoji.
