    I use nova launcher and im finding that all too often when typing i accidentally press a capacitive button which can end up getting really messy.

    I have found a solution to this. Basically just download the Button Mapper app then re-programme all three capacitive buttons so they can only be activated with a long press.

    It does take some getting used to but it is a solution

    I am experimenting with the delay timing so i can find the optimal setting. At the moment i have it set to a 300ms delay.

    But then that though kills each keys long press functionality!

    Have you played BM enough to see if it'd all a triple tap of each keys normal LP function?

    I don't use the long press functionality. Admittedly if you use the default long press functions then this isn't the solution for you.

    It doesnt allow for a triple tap.

    Not to take attention away from the topic but I am trying to figure out how to program the convenience key with Button Remapper.

    Anyone know what the convenience key button's name is in button remapper?

    You have to add it as a new button.

    To be honest convenience key remap doesnt work very well though so best avoided imo

    Tested for optimal settings and it seems 200ms is the sweet spot.

    The button mapper works amazing for the Keyone. It is a good suggestion, OP.

    I have my keyboard set up, so that the keyboard shortcut works anywhere in the phone, and not just the home screen.

    And the benefit of having the keyboard shortcuts that work anywhere in the phone outweigh the occasional need to capitalize mid sentence. I do not even go to the home screen anymore since there is no need. In this post, I did not have to manually capitalize with the long press once.

    If I do have to capitalize mid sentence, I can do it manually, which I have adjusted to get after a few days.

    I have the same app that you do.

    Use these settings for the advanced setting.

    On the BlackBerry Launcher keyboard setting, I had to put the identical actions as on the Button Remapper app.
