You can use an onscreen keyboard in a remote desktop or application. To display the onscreen keyboard, tap the Keyboard icon in the Unity Touch sidebar. To hide the onscreen keyboard, tap the Keyboard icon again.
The onscreen keyboard includes the PageUp and PageDn navigation keys, function keys, and other keys that you often use in Windows environments, including Ctrl, Alt, Del, Shift, Win, Caps, Esc, and Del. Use the Shift key on this keypad when you need to use key combinations that include the Shift key, such as Ctrl+Shift. To tap a combination of these keys, such as Ctrl+Alt+Shift, first tap the onscreen Ctrl key. After the Ctrl key turns blue, tap the onscreen Alt key. After the Alt key turns blue, tap the onscreen Shift key. A single onscreen key is provided for the key combination Ctrl+Alt+Del.
You can tap the pen icon on the left side of the Ctrl key to display the local input buffer. Text that you type into this text box is not sent to an application until you tap Send. For example, if you open an application such as Notepad and tap the pen icon, the text that you type does not appear in the Notepad application until you tap Send. This feature is useful if you have a poor network connection and characters do not immediately appear when you type them. With this feature, you can quickly type up to 1,000 characters and then either tap Send or Return to have all 1,000 characters appear at once in the application.
