Is there a shortcut for typing 「」on 9-button flick keyboard (Gboard)

I currently type かぎかっこ to get 「」on Gboard.

Is there a faster way?

Dunno if it’s quicker, but you can go to the symbols keyboard with ?123, and press (. Then the 「 appears in the suggestions.

I was sure there was something like that and completely forgot to test that one key :sweat_smile:

For anyone on the iPhone default kana keyboard, this works for that too, FYI! Another shortcut I commonly use is to hunt for … in the predictions for 、or 。

Question was specifically about the flick keyboard. You’re using a full keyboard.

For me there’s a flick on 7 for it, when you cycle through the input types (iOS). Should be something similar, as it’s a pretty essential key.
