Using keyboard

Trying to figure out how to use the keyboard for naming ir remote buttons etc. How do I get access to non alphanumerical symbols like ‘+’ and ‘-’ ? Figured out longpress for caps but there doen’t seem to be any documentation on this.

I don’t think you can. I manually edit the names afterwards using a PC. There are a few ways to do it but if you are doing several it’s easiest to turn the Flipper off and remove the SD card. Then use a computer.

These symbols are not available on the Flipper Zero. I already complained about the demanded naming schema at GitHub - Lucaslhm/Flipper-IRDB: A collective of different IRs for the Flipper, that says:

Please use this naming scheme for buttons.



To be compliant, the files need to be edited afterwards.

Maybe we can get long press to turn on shift or caps lock. That would give us enough symbols. Currently long press can make capitals and spaces. I think if a number is highlighted and we use long press a list of non alpha could come up. Maybe 2 and 8 would be a shortcut for + and - to resemble the numpad on a keyboard and anything else brings up the list? Seems like those are the most common non alpha characters we would want.
