Sure would be nice to have access to Dictionary text combinations like on a Gboard and other on screen KBs. This is one super handy tool that is missing in DEX using a NexDock or other KB

Sure. If you want a PNG version, just change the extension to .png.

So i wanna use DeX as a softphone mostly, but without the need to click with the mouse.
I can open up Phone app and use my numpad and Enter-key to make a call, all nice and good.
But answering a call and hanging up a call is difficult without using the mouse.
Tried all keyboard shortcuts but none does what i want. Using Tab and then Enter is possible, but not as easy as I would like for my colleagues.
Is there any app I can install on the phone that makes for example "Enter" work for answering calls, and "Esc" for hanging up? Or any other keybind solution? Thank you!

Looking to send a message without having to click send.. I've tried different keyboard shortcuts like shift + enter - control + enter & various others, however, nothing seems to work. Any/all help is highly appreciated, looking forward to your responses.

I gave up on this, and I now use via the Samsung Internet browser. It allows sending via enter key.

I type the message and then press tab twice then enter

Just for anyone else with this question, you may be able to access 'send using enter' in the settings menu of whichever messaging app you're using. This is how to do it in Textra;
-Menu. (... arranged vertically)
-Send using enter (switch)
You'll just have to be carful and ensure you're ready to send before you hit enter. If you add lines to make lists like the one above, you may need to type your message in a text editing app like notepad first.

Yes it's the same in Telegram There's a setting in the app settings itselfThat says send with enter. But that's probably because it's alsoquite prominent as a desktop appI don't know if other apps have itOr if there's a general all phone setting for it for when it's used in dex mode

Thank you for the shortcut. So it seems this shortcut works like window snapping in Windows 10. I'm going to add it to shortcut list.

Well I just tried Win+Arrow Up does full-screen.
Win+Arrow down Takes you off Full-screen and once more does window Minimize.
