fullstops as delimiter for pages
#1
I'm not sure if it's different on other devices, but if I want to edit the order of pages of the song my Sony Xperia Z4 (German settings) initially shows only a numpad without any commas.

It would be nice, if MS would accept "fullstop" on this numpad (which is  on it) as comma so one doesn't have to switch to the alphanumeric view and back.

You could try a different keyboard. The SwiftKey keyboard I use has both the comma and full stop on the numeric pad. It depends how much you love the keyboard you are already using :^)

Well, yes. I'm aware of workarounds. I'm using Swype BTW and prefer to keep it.
I wanted to make aware of this "problem" and see if Mike considers it worth fixing so nobody needs to switch keyboards.

Sure, I can add "fullstop" (this is the same as a period right?). I'll just dynamically replace any '.' with ','

Yes. Thats what I meant. “.“ to be exact. Sorry for my unclear (not native speaker) English. Thanks for considering it.

'Full stop' is English - 'period' is American.  Two countries divided by a common language Smile .

Seasons Greetings to all.

I thought it was possible for an app to control what keys are shown on the keyboard? So an '-' (for ranges) could be displayed as well?

Thanks for including this in the update. It wasn't in the changelog AFAIK so I was pleasantly surprised it worked with the period from the numpad, when I tried it for the pages entry. Much more convenient now.
