iPad Pro 12.9 (3rd Gen) software keyboard

I’ve been using a 9.7” iPad since May 2010, but i’m amazed how difficult i’m finding it to get used to the 12.9 keyboard. The extra width along with the movement of characters, e.g. the exclamation mark, failure to hit the delete key and the regular missing of the shift key.

Has anyone else struggled in the transition?
