I’m speaking at Rootstech 2014 on Friday, February 7th at 10:30 a.m. on Using Macs and iPads for Genealogy. Hope to see you in Salt Lake City!
Two iPad keyboard tricks are Tuesday’s Tip. You can change your iPad keyboard in portrait mode by pressing the keyboard icon in the lower right corner of the keyboard itself.
1. Split iPad Keyboard
If you need to type while holding your iPad, choose the “Split” command on the keyboard icon in the lower right. The keyboard splits in two and you can type with your thumbs while you’re holding your iPad.
You can also split the keyboard with two finger swipes in the opposite direction.
(After the keyboard splits, if you want to type one of the letters from the right keyboard with your left thumb (or vice versa), Apple adds six invisible buttons to the split keyboard. Tap the blank space to the right of T and Y is registered by the keyboard. Tap to the right of G and H appears. Tap to the right of V and B appears. Or tap the blank space to the left of Y, H, and B to have T, G, or V registered by the keyboard.)
