Browse matched candidates by scrolling the candidate bar.

Where is the comma?
Due to the limited screen estate for the normal key keyboard layout, the comma is implemented as a pair-key with the full stop. Just double tap the '. ,' key on the right of the space key to get it.
Nothing happen after installation.
The Cangjie keyboard is implemented as an input method add on for Android. It will not be shown in the programs list of the home screen. Follows the instructions at the 'How To Use' section above to start.
Can't find a specific Chinese character.
Not all Chinese characters are mapped in the build in look up table. Try to type an Unicode HEX code prefixed with a 'u' to get the specified character. (e.g. type 'u5009' to get the character '倉')
