    Touch keyboard layout changing disabled


    Hi,
    On the default touch keyboard there is a button on the bottom right hand corner that has a selection of four different keyboard layouts. All of which work except one. One of them (the thumb) keyboard is disabled and does not let me select.
    In was wondering if anyone knew why and how to fix it.

    Thanks in advance.

    The only thing I can find is that it is disabled in portrait mode. It has to be used in landscape mode. Ot at least on the Dell Venue Pro according to the Dell support center.
