There seem to be a few different ways to type “smart quotes” on Ubuntu Linux, including using keys (keystrokes) like AltGr and Compose. In this tutorial I’ll document an approach that works best for me: creating macros I can assign to simple keystrokes rather than having to use more-complicated keystrokes.
I wouldn’t want to use a 9” tablet as a laptop all the time, but sometimes at night I use my Nexus 9 with a Bluetooth keyboard to type some notes or start writing some code I plan to work on the next day. I don’t use many apps, just a decent Android text editor I found.
Pros: Using the touchscreen to scroll and place the cursor. Copy and paste isn’t too bad.
Cons: The small display and keyboard.

I purchased an “IVSO Google Nexus 9 8.9-inch Bluetooth Keyboard Portfolio Case” a few days ago, and here’s a quick review of it.

[Control][F2] keystroke. That never actually worked, so I logically assumed that everyone else was insane.
Well, it turns out that what really happened is that silly me was using Apple keyboards ... and as I was trying to figure this out again today, I looked over at that
[fn] key on the keyboard, and thought, "No, surely I wouldn't have to press that too ..."
When using Android with "soft" touchscreen keyboards, you can change how the keyboard looks, and how the EditText widget works by specifying an inputType when you create your EditText widget.

Mac mouse/keyboard battery FAQ: How can I check the battery level of my Mac mouse or Mac keyboard?
The easiest way I know to see the Mac keyboard/mouse battery level is to put the Bluetooth menu on your Mac menu bar, and check it from there. This menu will be in the upper-right corner of the Mac menu bar, and it looks like three small dashes with some other figure behind those dashes. (This is something like the normal Bluetooth icon, but a little different.)
