Description

Initially reported on #10263#note-10.

The GNOME on-screen keyboard allows e.g. long-pressing uao -> menu where the umlaut version can be inserted.

One of us tried this long-press thing after being suggested this by an Android user, and initially thought it did not work because he expected a shorter delay.

Let's see if we can easily fix that or if we need to document it somehow.

History

#1 Updated by intrigeri 17 days ago

Indeed, there's a hardcoded 1s delay since that Vala code was introduced.

Reported upstream: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=788369

  • Status changed from Confirmed to In Progress
  • Target version changed from Tails_3.3 to Tails_3.4

If nothing happens on the upstream bug during this cycle, I'll point the GNOME design team to it.
