Hi, I went to a friend's house whose wifi password had a tilde ~ but I wasn't able to connect to the network because there is no tilde on the Jolla VKB.

I also tried to long press some other characters but no tilde.

Please add it to the characters of the VKB.

Perhaps to adjust your question, which is quite valid, but the UK vkb does include a tilde ~ character, where as, I noticed the Italiano vkb does not.

On the UK vkb, the tilde is present;

At least the Swedish and the English keyboard layouts have tilde. Seems to be missing from the Italian layout though.

Not on my Italiano vkb it isn't. (OS

@chemist, your answer is not necessarily correct. Perhaps it differs between sailfish OS versions

This is a known issue, our RCs have it already fixed and it will be rolled out with one of the next updates.

It got removed when we added the apostrophe, so it depends on the version.

The german keyboard is also missing the " ≈ " and it would be great to get this character. :)
