    Hey all,

    So I have a brand new iPad Pro and a bluetooth keyboard for it. While I can get a Colemak keyboard on the screen, I am having MASSIVE issues trying to connect my actual bluetooth keyboard and use it in a Colemak layout. It is only allowing the bluetooth Keyboard to work in QWERTY but not in Colemak. Anyone able to solve this problem?

    P.S. I just decided yesterday to switch to Colemak all out. Didn't even know about it until 3 days ago. ?

    Yeah, the on-screen software keyboard is a separate thing from connected hardware. You'll need to install something that will support connected physical keyboard (either via USB or bluetooth). I have done this on Android, but unfortunately my knowledge IPad/IPhone is pretty non-existent, hopefully someone else with Apple knowledge can advise...

    Meanwhile, on screen I recommend using MessagEase or a similar touch-screen optimized board. See the BigBag – not sure if you can customize it as much on iPhone but the default setup is very good anyway.
