Bug Report: Adding new onscreen keyboard

Reproduction

Hello,

We started using SiteKiosk for windows (using windows 10). I found onscreen keyboard layouts in installation folder and want use one of them (lightweight_special_docked in \SiteKiosk\Skins\Provisio\lightweight_black). I modified keyboard's xml file for our purposes (deleted all unused characters like "#!% etc. because we need only letters and numbers on keyboard), but I can't find a way how to add this new keyboard layout to SiteKiosk Config Editor for choosing to use it in SiteKiosk.
How I can add new keyboard skin into Config Editor and use it in SiteKiosk?

Hello,

If you modified an existing keyboard it is usually already added to the SiteKiosk configuration tool >On-Screen Keyboard. The name is given in the corresponding keyboard xml file.
But in this case it is not displayed in SiteKiosk 9.7 because it is an older Keyboard.
What you can do is to change the name in the file “lightweight_black.xml” at “SiteKiosk\Skins\Provisio\lightweight_black”.
E.g. to Custom Black

<keydef name="Custom Black">


If creating a new keyboard you also need to create a corresponding SKSKIN file.
