Using the Ukrainian alphabet

having started the Ukrainian course a while since, I was pleased to be able to avail myself of the Ukrainian alphabet, the symbols of which appeared in a wee box near the tasks requiring an answer in written Ukrainian for each lesson. Now, however, they seem to have stopped altogether and I'd really need to get them back - having now to write answers in Ukrainian by using a kind of English phonetic equivalent. At present I am at level four. Suggestions would be very welcome plz

On mobile also install additional language packs and switch keyboards either by long pressing space or by the specific language change key. Be aware that some older models only support up to 4 languages

how about the letter "ґ"? Still don't find out how to write it.

Try this:

Right Alt + г (for lowercase)

Right Alt + Shift + г (for uppercase)

(If you don't have right Alt, use Ctrl + regular Alt instead).

The reason why access to this letter is complicated is that letter is pretty rare and appears only in several words, so we don't use it too often.

Also, I recommend you to install "Ukrainian (enhanced)" layout, instead of regular one. The difference is that layout has an apostrophe (on tilde) and our currency symbol (on Shift + tilde).

This is very important. They should just get additional letters back. I need "i" which is in Ukrainian somehow different from English i

This is exactly why I am here. I was about to ask the course devs to add the virtual Ukrainian letters, like in German courses. I already have one cyrillic layout installed, +Eng, +De, and I don't feel like adding the fourth one into my poor operating system. :]
