FS#10872 - Improve the usability of the virtual keyboard

I have started an discussion about the virtual keyboard in the mailing list.

In my opinion the text_editor’s control should be similar to the calculator:
- use the whole screen (no tiny font)
- support for touchscreen (raster map)
- separate characters into categories

I adjust the calculator plugin to show my concept.

please don’t mix text_editor and virtual keyboard. there is no point to make text_editor similar calculator.
use the whole screen (no tiny font).
If you load a customized kbd file you can use user font (it won’t be tiny).
check the wiki for more info:

And I disagree removing support for non-ASCII characters.

If you change text_editor please change text_editor, don’t post a diff which only creates a new text_editor. It’s impossible to see any differences from your diff.
