    Keyboard Layout for Dock

    Hi,

    when I used the TF in docked mode. The I have plenty of emails in german and English. Since I have the german version if the TF the keyboard has a German layout.
    I can choose the language of the ASUS Keyboard to English easily, however, by doing this in change the layout of the the keyboard to English as well.

    Any idea how I can Either:
    Prevent this
    or
    configure the keyboard layout when I use English as language?

    Thanks

    Are you wanting to use the English layout, or just type in English but use the German layout that you are used to?

    I am pretty sure the latter may not be possible.

    Hi there..
    Having the same problem as our friend Forlon (Swiss kb layout which is pretty close to the German one), I finally set my kb dock on Swiss German and type in English, ignoring the suggestions and corrections.
    too bad there is no possibility to set the kb dock layout and the language you type in separately. I usually write in 5 languages and it would be useful.
    No problem with the screen kb though...

    It has been changed back. I will have a discussion with the person who changed it.

    Back to the original issue:

    Are you wanting to use the English layout, or just type in English but use the German layout that you are used to?

    If you use an English layout (US or UK) it will be a QWERTY layout even though the keyboard is a QWERTZ. If you use a German layout (QWERTZ) you can type the English words, but the spelling suggestions will be everywhere since it is trying to make it German.

    It's important to say that it in Android 3.x it was possible to have different keyboard layout and language settings. I use a Spanish keyboard and I type in Portuguese. After upgrade to ICS this option disappeared and now almost single word is marked with a suggestion of correction. And, sometimes I need to type in English (as in this case) and I face the same problem.

    Hi all,
    Maybe I don't understand the issue, but I can keep my Swiss french layout (QWERTZ) and write in french, german and english with predictions in the 3 languages. How? In Language & Keyboard:

    1. Don't change the language layout (by me it's French Swiss)
    2. Open Settings of "Asus Keyboard"
    3. Open Type languages (first option - don't know what's the label because my TF201 is set to french
    4. Untick Use System language
    5. Choose all languages you need
    It's done

    Btw: I don't know if it makes any difference, but I use an application named Keyboard Manager - free on Play Store - This application is fixing an issue with the layout of Asus Keyboard (some characters were not associated to the right keys) when other keyboards (Swiftkey, etc.) are installed and used with the tablet undocked. But the tablet need to be rooted!

    Hope it will help

    merci panthère noire..
    I'll try this out to see if it works for me.
    if the option was available on android 3.xx, then it would be both crazy and absurd not to have it on ICS....
