When using the iPad keyboard for any sort of content creation, you will often find the need for special punctuation and other marks. The usual method for accessing these marks is to tap the key next to the spacebar and then choosing the mark needed from that screen. But this workflow can feel a bit unnatural and can ruin the flow when you’re in the middle of penning your latest opus. Luckily there is a handy shortcut for accessing some of the most common marks.
For instance, if you need to place a double quotation mark, you can tap and hold the combo “?.” key and then slid your finger upwards. Doing so brings up a hidden popup key for the ” mark.
The same goes for the “!,” combo key. Tap and hold on the key and then slide your finger upward slightly will reveal the apostrophe mark.
The fun doesn’t stop there. Need an accent mark or a bullet character? You can find these and more hidden behind many of the keys on the “number” keyboard screen (accessed by tapping the key next to the spacebar.)
