Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Accessing hidden shortcuts and expanding text, part of iPad Tips and Tricks.
- Hidden within the keys of your iPad's keyboard are…some shortcuts to cut down on your typing time…as well as to give you access…to characters and symbols you won't be able…to type unless you know how to access them.…We've already seen some convenient shortcuts…like typing a double space to add a period…at the end of a sentence,…and that holding down on the Characters…and Numbers key let's you slide over to…those characters to select them,…and then get popped right back…into the Alphabetic keyboard.…So those are ways to access the obvious letters…and characters, but holding down on other keys…will also bring up additional characters you can use.…Let's say I'm typing the word "cafe"…and I want to make sure it ends properly…with the acute accent over the E.…
So I type C-A-F,…and then I hold own on the E,…and after a second a whole slew…of accented Es appear,…and I can just slide it over…to the one I want,…and it's added to my text.…You'll find these hidden characters and symbols…for any letter you need them for.…Not all keys have them…
