Keyboard Position Options On the iPad

You can do a few things to make the keyboard on your iPad easier to type on. You can undock the keyboard from the bottom of the screen and move it to a position that is better for your hands. You can also split the keyboard to place the keys closer to the edges when holding the iPad with two hands. Both of these options are available in vertical or horizontal orientations.

    Oh thank you for that info Garry. I accidentally caused the keyboard to split one morning which took me ages to work out how to “fix it ” Now I know I can use it any time I want.

    I do not get the menu (undock/split) when I tap & hold the keyboard icon.

    Stan: What device and iOS version are you using? Did you maybe disable this in Settings, General, Keyboard, Split Keyboard?

    After spending time at the Apple Store, where they tried to solve the problem by Resetting All Settings, then Erase All Content and Settings-to no avail→an appt. was set up with Apple. When the Advisor called, he initially was stumped, but then found a little known fact:
    If you look in Apple Support→How to split and move the keyboard on your iPad, under Split the keyboard, in small print, it says: You can’t use a split keyboard on iPad Pro (12.9-inch)!!!

    I have an iPad Pro 12.9 inch also, and I can not move the keyboard, nothing happens when I hold the small keyboard
