In a non-english language (Persian) when I want to use a special character, I should tap on shift key (⇑) and then use the character. Other way is hold one special key to use the character. In second way, I can use the character, but in first way not.

Real happening: I tap on Shift and ‍ع for using char غ. I do this but instead of غ, char ع is written, but when I hold ع, char غ is writen and I want it.

Problem solved: I disable suggestion system and problem solved.

I use android 6 and system's default keyboard.

Excuse me if I describe badly :(

  • Are you talking about an on-screen keyboard or a physical keyboard?

  • On-screen keyboard. Sep 24, 2021 at 17:56
  • Have you tried other keyboard apps? Sep 24, 2021 at 19:51
  • Because of few space, I prefer to use system default. Sep 24, 2021 at 20:28
  • Please note that there's no universal system's default keyboard since vendors can customize it. Thus, could you edit and mention the device model and the system's default keyboard? You can check the name from Settings - Languages & input - Current Keyboard.
