I think you are missing the point---you can do exactly that but from the screen that comes up by pressing and HOLDING the green key. Type in "A" and all the "a"s come up.
Maybe I am missing what you are saying as this is my first BB and I have no past frame of reference. Try holding the green key and doing what you want from the screen that comes up.
Let me know if I understood you incorrectly.
