[feature req] Change keyboard L-R swipe to change to special chr keyboard

Now: Left-Right swipe on keyboard changes the language, special characters are behind a "button" and more than one press

Please: make Left-Right swipe change to special character keyboards and make another way to change the keyb. language

=> the swipe gesture is much faster & easier - and the special chanacters are more frequently needed than language change

Or at least the long-press alternative functions... I miss those...

Are you sure swipe is "faster and easier"? Pressing [?123] instantly switches to the keyboard for special characters. No delay at all. Swiping the keyboard has 2 built-in delay factors: It takes a while before the finger movement is recognized as a swipe to change the keyboard. Then, there's the animation until the new keyboard has stopped moving. These delays are minimal, but they are not at all present when using the [?123]-key.
