Question: Why is this feature unavailable on 12.9 pro?

The 12.9 pro seems the ideal iPad for this feature. Why is it not available?

It is available, but you need to set the display to zoomed, otherwise, the keyboard would be too small when split to be of any use.

Go to Settings->Display & Brightness->View, and make sure its set to Zoomed.

Then you can access the Split Keyboard feature as explained in the document you came from.

Fair enough, that does work. However, functionally is lost, etc... while the keyboards splits, the display is affected, and that not what I was looking to have happen. I would have purchased 10.5 if I wanted a smaller/zoomed view. Ty for the response tho
