Recent external display messages/keyboard bug

2021-06-09, 15:44 PM

Recently (for maybe a month) I've experienced a new bug when using messages on the external display. If I have tap the text entry area, the keyboard comes up like normal and I can type.  However, if I minimize the keyboard, I can not get it to come back up unless I back out to the main messages screen and enter the contact I am texting/chatting with again.  This is repeatable both with a chat message or with SMS.

 

I generated a bug report but I can't remember the email address to send it to and what information I'm supposed to include in the email.

Hi.

 

Thanks for the report. I can reproduce this as described. I did find that if I enter the emoji or photo options within the SMS and then back out of there I can get the keyboard back again.

 

Since I can reproduce it I may not need a bug report, but I will let you know! Reporting.

 

Regards,

Thanks for looking into this!  I can confirm that I see the same behavior as you do if I enter the emoji or photo options.  Let me know if you need the bug report.  I guess it's the best kind of bug since you can reproduce it easily.
