    Has anyone else noticed that this option is missing after the update? I find it critical for using my Surface Pro in landscape mode. Is it in some hidden or moved setting now?

    I was wondering the same thing. I have been using it ever since they introduced it in Windows 8. :(

    as per patch notes, this feature has been removed. I am freaking out now. Please, submit a request to get it back via feedback hub. Maybe if enough of us make a stink, Microsoft would consider it.

    Where are these patch notes? Who the hell thought it was a good idea to remove this feature?

    Sometimes you have to wonder what goes into decisions like this... Knowing these clowns feedback wont work, best to look for 3rd party alternatives.

    This is INSANE! The replacing swipe keyboard is WASTLY inferior on my Surface Pro and the other layouts are absolutely useless to. Soo increadibly bad judgement!

    This feature is not useful for me on Lumia.
    So unsupported FCU users can use this.
    Feedback support team have huge collection of pending features requests to implement.

    I haven’t used my surface pro in a while and now I come back to find this dumb change. This angers me soooo much. On the iPad Pro at least I still have the option. Microsoft is constantly doing stuff to push people away. I think it’s by design. They want people to hate windows.

    Still no split keyboard!!!! This is a bone head move. Never ever remove features that people use daily if you want to keep your customers happy. What the ____!!!!!
