Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn – Using both Keyboard and Gamepad at the Same Time

Disabling direct chat from system menu > keybind > system > uncheck “Enable Direct Chat”

Can also be found under Character Config >

And now a gamepad user can use both gamepad and keyboard back and forth for full gameplay without going to type ‘w’ to move forward but then seeing that you typed the letter ‘w’ instead. With this, I can now job change using the primary hot bar, activate skills using secondary hot bar while also accessing cross hotbar. This makes me so so very happy

How to show both cross hotbar and regular hotbars at the same time
System menu > Char Config > Hotbars > Display – select any hotbars you wish to display
Then under “Sharing” make sure none of them are shared – this is personal preference though, as with both cross hotbar and hot bar enabled, my screen estate and number of skills available to mouse click has exponentially increased
