Caps lock key on Motorola Droid 4 does not work / hard kb Shift
On the new Motorola Droid 4, if you use swiftkey, the Caps Lock hardkey becomes disabled. It is utterly useless. If I uninstall swiftkey, it immediately starts working again. This appears to be a widespread issue with your software on motorola phones with physical keyboards.
This specific issue re: the caps lock key on the Motorola Droid 4 is well known on the forums, with no fix or response from swiftkey on the issue. Please advise.
We believe this issue to be resolved in our latest update of version 126.96.36.199. After you’ve updated to that version, if you continue to have the same issue, please create a new post with additional details.
after the latest droid update apr 10, my caps lock key and shift key won't work on some applications. i have to press and hold the shift key to get the right character. i have searched through settings looking for some answers, but i have not found any settings relating to the caps lock issue. this problem is really booger. this is my first and last motorola phone!
The Caps Lock key seems to work fine for me with Android 4.0.4 and SwiftKey 188.8.131.52 on my Droid 4. Is this still an issue for people? Maybe it was only on Android 2.x or on an old version of SwiftKey?

Same here, using DROID 4, 2.3.6. I'm pretty sure it was an issue on my DROID 2 also.

Come on SwiftKey! Repsond at least! It's pretty outrageous that you don't even respond to all your bugs. This was reported 4 months ago and since then you have released a completely new version of your software that STILL contains this bug!
No love for the physical keyboard...
Same issue here.
A workaround until they get this fixed is to double tap Shift ... it works on my Droid 4.
It also capitalizes all words with a ! Or ? After it with the hard keyboard.

Doesn't work for me either.
Still no response? Come on! I'm really disappointed that I've spent money on this.. :\
I can confirm this. The indicator light for the physical caps lock key turms on for only as long as you have the button/key held down, but the button never actually works.
