Hi all,

Running SFOS 3.0 on the Gemini, there is the issue that more often than not, I can not paste selected/copied text reliably.

For some applications, Ctrl-C/Ctrl-V does work, for others not.

Most annoying is the password fields on web pages in the default browser. I use KeePass to store my passwords, and I can use the ownKeepass app to copy them to the clipboard, but the password can not be pasted to the web site. Various apps are affected as well.


  1. is there a key combination other than Ctrl-V that is supposed to do a paste action?
  2. is there a way to bring up the on-screen keyboard on the Gemini, so I can do the paste from there?

The latter would also help when using other keyboard languages such as the emoji keyboard reliably.

Hi Nephros,

I am missing this feature since Jolla 1 with my bluetooth-keyboard. This is one of the reasons that I haven't bought a Gemini PDA, yet. It would simply make me grow old faster from anger ...

Can you bring up the on-screen keyboard while the BT one is connected?
