Hi everybody! I just found this awesome community! I'm the proud owner of a Note 5, and I have a question. I am trying to get Roboto Thin or Light as my phone font. Does anyone know how I can accomplish this without rooting my phone? I'm running 6.0.1 on a stock Sprint phone.

I have a suggestion. I love that this keyboard has the option to put alternate symbols on the keys - I think that pressing the keys is ever-so-slightly faster than dragging from the ?123 key or long-pressing the period key. However, in my humble opinion, it makes the keyboard look a little cluttered 😉. So...
Would it be possible to have the alternate symbols accessible but not visible (a "hide symbol" option)? Or maybe a separate color control for the symbols?

And, how's that swipe/gesture option coming along? (No pressure... But the suspense is killing me...

I just thought I'd offer some suggestions as possibilities when the swipe capability is implemented for the space bar/suggestion strip.
1. Move the cursor. Not sure how up/down would work, but the ability to move it left/right would still be useful.
2. Slide to resize the keyboard on the fly.
3. Slide to add/subtract the dedicated number row. (I would love this one!)
4. Slide left on the suggestion bar to delete the last whole word.
5. Slide to mark text for 'copy/paste' clipboard actions.

That should keep you busy for a while 😄. Would anybody else find these useful?

I'm still getting occasional crashes (once every couple days) when opening the settings.
Any idea when we'll see the "official" release in the Play Store?

One more question: the Play Store description mentions 'inverted' and 'Amoled' themes. Any idea when we'll see those?

+Papa Smurf​​ yeah we probably implement also the font color too.
+Omar Rafie​​ yes only beta for now.
+Ken Mathis​ if we add the possibility to change the font color -> inverted color without problem.

This probably says more about my "real life" (namely, that I don't have one) than anything else, but I can't remember when I've been this excited about an app - it is a real joy to use. Hats off to the developers for creating such a useful (and beautiful!) work of art!
One question: any idea when the 'swipe' option might be available? Keep up the great work!

Thanx for the kind words. 😊👍
We enjoy it as much as you do!

Swipe gestures will be added later in the coming updates, as this version will be exiting beta soon and stable version will be published.
Stay tuned! 😊

Just downloaded the latest: OMG the gradients are gorgeous! However, I'm getting a lot of "unfortunately Chrooma has stopped" messages. The upgrade has some fantastic features, though. Awesome work!

I cleared the cache and data and the crashes seem to have become less frequent (but still show up). And did I mention that the gradients are freakin' gorgeous!? And that we now have a caps lock indicator (YEA!!)! And you can audition any changes you make without leaving settings! And you can change fonts! The devs have been very busy indeed.

In the color selector, there's a button labeled "paste hex". I'm sure there's something obvious that I'm missing, but I don't what that does or how it works. Any suggestions?

Found a minor bug. When inputting quotation marks, it occasionally puts a space after it, like " this". Haven't noticed it with any other punctuation, and it only happens sporadically. Anybody else notice this? Could just be me....

"It's you" according my my Google keyboard. I wish that could help, no idea what's causing this.

I'm having a hard time figuring out what these arrows are for. I'm sure I'm missing the obvious, but can someone fill me in?

You can try their functions inside gmail, focus on the mail object, click them and you should go inside the mail body.

Hi all. I just downloaded Google Messenger to see what all the fuss was about. Every contact except one matched perfectly, and that was an easy fix. Kudos to the developers! I don't know anything about coding, but this strikes me as being quite an accomplishment. Chrooma makes me want to keep Messenger as my messaging app! Keep up the great work. It is much appreciated.

Hi everybody! I love that this keyboard has the option to long-press for alternate characters (like punctuation). Would it be possible to have this feature without the alternate character having to be visible on the keyboard? I mean, I already know where most of the punctuation that I need is located, and the keyboard looks so much nicer without the clutter. Being able to long-press for common punctuation just feels a little faster to me.

So, what do you think?

Well, yeah, but then I can't long-press the letter keys to add punctuation. I have to drag from the number/punctuation key in the lower left. Turning off "show symbols" turns off the very option that I'm after.
