Original topic:

One UI - Keyboard Space below

I really like the new update and everything seems really nice and sleek, however, the one thing that bothers me is the space below the keyboard when you're on full screen mode. Before the update, it wasn't like that at all, now, however, it seems like it's a wasted space below.

 

Before buying the Samsung Galaxy S9, what I disliked about the iPhone X was the space below its keyboard. Now that the new One UI has it too, it's a bit disappointing to have wasted space down below. Thankfully that space only appears on the keyboard though.

 

Was this overlooked or is it possible to adjust the keyboard to full screen mode?

but it can be much lower in S10



I found a solution , you can actually resize the keyboard a little bit lower. Press the 3 dots, tap on modes, change keyboard size and you can adjust it lower Screenshot_20190402-231504_Chrome.jpg

Have the same problem. After update one ui I didn't have any space below keyboard. Now it looks like navigation panel without buttons. And space on top of keyboard looks big. I want small keyboard. Before and now screenshotsBeforeBefore

That's good feedback @Makrinious  @moiramadamba 

 

Can you both also send this feedback via your Samsung Members App too ?

Same here...Samsung's statement: our test penel though this was the best option, so deal with the design...

 

I just want to be able to change this myself, like Android should be!

The space is there for a reason. On the iPhone since it went full screen and gesture based the keyboard needs to move up so it is placed in area you’ve been used to all along. When you have a full screen and use gestures the keyboard at the very bottom is very uncomfortable and altogether unbalanced. When you had the navigation bar the keyboard couldn’t be at the very bottom

This is sooo bad from Samsung. Why on earth can Google Keyboard work with One UI (no navbar) but not their own keyboard?

Go to the Keyboard settings (Or tap on the gear icon)

Than tap on Keyboard Layout and Feedback

go Size and Tranparency

You should be able to chage the layout there.

Great solution! Both the size and position of the keyboard can be adjusted here. The space (grey bar) below my keyboard is gone now. Thanks!

Unable to go any lower on S9. Google Gboard and Swiftkey go all the way to the bottom of screen. To the very last pixel row haha

You should go to settings> display>navigation bar and toggle "show button to hide keyboard".

This is actually hilarious. Never really occurred to me that the bottom edge can be dragged lower than it is too until now. The fact that this effectively repositions your keyboard, yet nothing points this out in either the name or description of the setting page kinda throws me for a loop. I mean, what the hell Samsung?
