OK, I'm sorry, I missed that.
I really liked that Illume keyboard :-( It was perfect.
I didn't know that it went away.
So where do I edit the keymaps for the new-default, QPE keyboard, so that I can create a full-QWERTY layout just like the Illume one?
Also, bringing up the "zoom" doesn't make the dictionary go away. It's still changing my "ls" to "is".
