If you use this script to switch the keyboard, the existing keyboard will be hidden.
How can I change the beta version to use with the existing keyboard?

@shinya.ta Are you sure that you have installed the last version?
If yes, the ⏩ key should work fine.
If it does not work, then you should have forgotten to install the last version.
If yes, I want to be sure that that you hope that the "copy" button copies TO the clipboard, and does not perform a paste FROM the clipboard.
I was able to use it in the text view of the previous cursor moving application.
The previous cursor moving application was a "full Pythonista" application and did not need this setting "full access" but this is a keyboard application and needs to be authorized to copy some selected text (from Email by example) to the Clopboard.
I'm not sure but it is possible that, if you modify a setting, you need to restart (NOT REINSTALL) Pythonista, that will say remove it from the active apps and recall it.
Did you do that?
new version with check full access
this is the same version but the title of the copy button will be "no full" if Pythonista setting "full access" is off
But it wasn't good.
It was the same as the previous cursor moving application, and it was the same as when I was using the Japanese voice. It was normal on my wife's iPhone.
But it wasn't good on my iPhone.
It is certain that it is slightly different depending on the device.
@shinya.ta I hope you have installed the new version.
And do you see the text "copy" or "no full"?
Is the new version "330015"?
@shinya.ta I speak of the new version of the Pythonista script...Emojis keyboard
And stay in 330014
@shinya.ta could you test this little script as keyboard and tell me if you
get "qwerty" if tap on "copy" and the tap paste key
import keyboard import clipboard import ui v = ui.View() b = ui.Button() b.frame = (2,2,60,32) b.title = 'copy' def b_action(sender): t = 'qwerty' clipboard.set(t) b.action = b_action v.add_subview(b) keyboard.set_view(v, 'expanded')
@shinya.ta Check your script, you forgot the first line "import keyboard" 😢
@shinya.ta Then the problem you have is not due to the device.
I think you did something wrong.
set setting/Pythonista/keyboards/authorize full access to OFF
close the keyboard app
choose Emojis Keyboard
The script should show the copy button with "no full" as title
Be careful, sometimes we need to close a keyboard, choose another one, close it and re-choose the tested one...
A keyboard seems to stay a little bit too long in memory
I don't understand the meaning of the Emoji keyboard.
@shinya.ta ok, sorry, that's the name I gave to this keyboard...
@shinya.ta Forget the last check that I have asked. If the little script for copy "QWERTY" works fine, that will say that the setting "full access" is ON thus my last request is useless.
Thus, the only reason I still see for the problem of copy is that you could have not installed the last version of my script. here
I installed the last version, but the result doesn't change.
I don't know why.
Could you install this little script as keyboard.
Then , you select a text where you want, tap the "copy" button and paste the clipboard to check if the action does work.
When you have tested the little script two days ago, it worked with "qwerty", now we check if it works with selected text, just to be sure that the get_selected_text works.
import keyboard import clipboard import ui v = ui.View() b = ui.Button() b.frame = (2,2,60,32) b.title = 'copy' def b_action(sender): t = keyboard.get_selected_text() clipboard.set(t) b.action = b_action v.add_subview(b) keyboard.set_view(v, 'expanded')
@shinya.ta I have exactly the same problem.
If I use my little keyboard script in Mail, it is not ok, it if I use it in Pythonista editor, it works.
It is like if Clipboard of Pythonista keyboard is not the same as another app's keyboard.
I don't know
I've created an issue in the bugs list of a Pythonista, hoping @omz would process it.
I tried it too, but it wasn't good.
@shinya.ta I'm sorry for you but I don't know if it is a problem of Pythonista or of iOS...
But sure, it is not your iDevice 😀
I hope that you could, despite that, use this script for other tasks than copy...
If you need more keys, don't hesitate to ask
@shinya.ta After some tests, it seems that in my little script and the big script, the "copy" button work in Safari, in Notes, in Pythonista, in Numbers but not in Mail....
This is perhaps an Apple limitation.
