One downloaded , you need to enable this IME softkeyboard from the

The snapshots are from an HTC Wildfire S. With other devices however,
setup should be quite similar.
Navigate to your phone setup screen ( green toothed wheel
Upon successfull installation , you should see 'Macro Keyboard'. Check
the checkbox and accept
the securiy warning message. Now the keyboard is registered by the
system. You may disable
it at any time by unchecking the box.
Upon first usage , please allow a few seconds for the license
check. That will only happen once after install.
Switching between keyboards
By default , any of your application uses the default system keyboard.
So you have to ask the application
you are using to switch from the default to the 'Macro Keyboard' It has
to be done once , simply long press
any editable text field presented by your application.
Below we opened the 'Messages' application.
See that upon long press , a small popup opens , with 'Input method'.
Click on this icon.
Then select 'Macro Keyboard' , as shown on the right hand
That's it! Now your application uses the 'Macro Keyboard'
Should you need to switch back to the default
keyboard , just apply the same procedure.
At least on HTC Wildfire S, it
looks you need to switch back to another
keyboard before upgrading , then switch back again to this one.
