comment Difficulties with the writing window
Is focus remaining on the text box you are typing in to? Just a thought that if focus was moving to another control (accidental screen tap perhaps?!) then the keyboard would close.

@Sparx: Yes, I have since used World Clock from timeanddate.com and this includes both "Makassar" and "Denpasar" from my example above.

comment Prevent Google Play from reinstalling apps after factory reset
I've often wondered about this and believed this to be the way it should work. However, when I got my Nexus 4 and connected with the same account I had used on my tablet for a while and installed many apps from Google Play, nothing was downloaded and installed automatically to my phone?!

Nope, not expecting every "backwoods". In fact the list in the stock clock is far more comprehensive than the LIST you link to. I'm not in the country I wish to set a world clock for. I've updated my question with links and an example.

comment How can I access bookmarked 'my places' maps from android phone?
I don't think you can access "custom maps" that you have created with the Googles Maps Engine via the Google Maps Android app (I assume that is what you are referring to)? The "Saved Places" (of which you don't appear to have any?) would appear to be singular places that have been saved within the App or on the Desktop. "Saved Places" is usually presented as a list of clickable places (if you have any). Once you have some saved places you then get a second list of "Nearby saved places".

comment Unresponsive menu button on several Android apps
This seems to be a different problem to the one listed in the question. The question addresses a spurious non-functioning soft-menu button that appears on all devices, in the soft-menu bar, when it is not required. You seem to have a problem with a legitimate menu button not responding.

comment icons disappear from desktop when app updates
Does this happen with all apps? I have noticed this with earlier versions 4.4.x, but only very occasionally.

If that solves your problem then you can put it as an answer (and accept it) which will inform others the question has been solved.

comment Can't surf from PC when using Android as hotspot
I had the same, although intermittent, problem recently. Whilst it would be OK for periods of time, my connection would drop and be unable to connect to sites, whilst the phone connection was still OK. In the end I put it down to the fact I was still connected to my wired LAN through which I would normally connect to the internet (my main broadband connection was down for a few days, hence why I was tethering via mobile). If I disconnected completely from my LAN (which wasn't desirable) I would regain the mobile connection.

comment Why does Gmail say “Cannot send an attachment” for a deleted mail?
How long has it been doing this? How long ago did you delete the message? Is it possible you deleted the message before it was properly sent?

comment Nexus 4 screenshot not viewable on PC
It sounds as if the files haven't transferred properly? How have you transferred the files? Have you copied the correct files?
