an idea can add more options to the keyboard, inspiration from the following image

sequence kb [a],[b], ...[z] current
qwerty kb [q],[w], ...[m] optional
qwerty kb + num kb [q],[w], ...[m] [0]...[9]

Thank you for your post.
The reason why I didn't propose qwerty layout is because of button size.
My goal was to propose widest buttons as possible (for user confort).
The 26 letters fit in 3 rows of 9 buttons.

but it's not possible to fit a qwerty layout in a 3x9 grid. (the 2 first rows need 10 buttons).

primer I really liked your program... I just found that... when using the dark mode... the letters you type are almost invisible, and the cursor (arrow) disappears. Other than that it is a great and useful program.[attachment=4744]
