Mr Pradeeka Seneviratne
I assigned following code to the virtual key:

+ [K_V] > u+200b '?'

In keyman Developer 7.1 it correctly displays ? in onscreen keyboard. But in keyman Developer 8 displays ?. After installing the keyboard also I am getting this issue in Keyman Desktop 8. But I can type the letter without any problem. Is it a bug in Keyman 8 Developer.

Hi Pradeeka,

Which font have you selected in the On Screen Keyboard? Can you send us a copy of the .kvk file (to support@tavultesoft.com) so that we can examine it to understand what might be happening?

Hi,

I have solved the above problem and these are the steps.

1. In 'Design an on-screen keyboard' in Keyman Developer 8, simply delete the loaded character (loaded by Fill from layput button)in 'Text' text box.

2. Drag the character again from the Character Map (change the insert mode to character in Character Map )

3. Compile the keyboard

Now in keyman Developer 8 '?' appears correctly on the on-screen keyboard key.

But in Keyman Developer 7.1 no need to apply above steps.

I'm not sure what is going on there -- it would be hard to know exactly what the cause is without seeing the original .kvk file which had the problem. Glad to hear you go it solved though -- good work!
