    Guys, how can I type a question mark from the slider keyboard? I can find it on the virtual keyboard, but not the slider keyboard. If there is no way to do this, that is going to be a problem.

    Thanks,

    Brian

    It's a key by itself (not an alt key) to the right of the "L".

    I had the same thing. I was looking for an Alt key, but they gave it a dedicated key.

    Again re-enforcing my believe that they designed the keyboard to be "single left hand" operated so the right thumb can control the D-PAD for application/gaming. Which explains why we have issues typing on it because we try to use it as a standard QWERTY on another device. Type giving the left thumb an extra key right or two and its weird at first, but you speed up quickly.

    Happened to me, too. I was like, how the heck do I do this? Gosh darned Google people! etc etc...

    Then I saw it. And I felt like a complete idiot.... glad to know that I'm not the only one! :D

    One of the best innovations ever imo. Own dedicated question mark key!
