At the moment, only letter keys have popper (long press) enabled to show more related letters/symbols in the Sailfish virtual keyboard. I am asking for adding this also for symbol keys in the two symbol views.

Having long press enabled with symbols would add more possibilities for modifying the keyboards to one's liking and getting quicker access to some symbols, not to mention added logical shortcuts to closely related symbols (currencies, %,‰, brackets etc.).

This is not hard to do in itself but involves in modifying system files that get overwritten in every Sailfish update. Editing files of this kind is not something I desire, however useful a feature might be. I can't really imagine a reason why the popper/long press should be available with letter keys only, so that is one more reason to add this feature request.
