DeX - Please disable Samsung Keyboard "shift-space" language toggle

The shift-space language toggle makes it virtually impossible to use an external keyboard with DeX and have a pleasant typing experience.

This has been a long time issue with the Samsung Keyboard being enabled when using external keyboards. DeX is making the issue much more prevalent.

If I use another keyboard app instead of the Samsung keyboard, it fixes the shift-space issue but then it'll turn on and blur the phone screen whenever I click into a typable field. So if the phone screen is off, it'll turn it on when I don't need it, and if I'm using the phone screen for something else (texting app usually) it'll blur over it.

Please provide the option to disable the shift-space language toggled in Samsung Keyboard, especially in DeX. This would literally solve everything (although fixing the related bugs would be nice, too).

Others noting the same issue:



And my favourite one, going all the way back to 2011:

Bump. I literally go insane every day from this because it makes it so hard to type! I don't want to turn off any other languages that I have on my phone, but this feature needs to be optional or re-mappable.

Yes this! I use DeX very frequently for school work, and this bothers me. It slows my typing speed dramatically.

Alright, who's the troll baking in these unproductive shortcuts?

Samsung hiring illogical devs nowadays?

 

Amateurs!

The same happens with my external keyboard experience and makes my typing process very slow because every time I type "I" or ",", it switches the next keyboard layout. The problem is explained very well in this post, so I hope that in the coming updates it will be solved. Please do it, it will turn DeX experience really upside down!

it's now fixed in Android 10 / OneUI 2. You can change the shortcut to several different key combinations, such as left alt + space, which is far less common/ annoying.

@nickthaskater 
how does one change this setting? I cannot find documentation on how to change it. I have been through every keyboard setting I can find, but cannot find this setting.  (I checked and am on OneUI 2.5 on Android 10)

Thanks!

Yes please! I would like to be able to re-map all of these shortcuts without the use of third-party apps. DeX is so powerful, yet I feel it could be so much more.
