Hi guys, I notice on my Jolla, that sometimes, when I write a sms or any other text, keyboard disappears. I can do nothing but reboot the os to solve the problem.

I noticed this yesterday as well. It has only happened once, with the new update.

Have you been using any custom keyboard and which or only standard keyboard layouts? Which layout in use?

In my case, I have only been using the standard English layout and the Emoji layout, and the keyboard disappeared when using the English layout.

In my case, I use French layout, no custom layouts

Does keyboard reopen if you tap the screen / text you are typing? I have seen it happen that keyboard disappeared totally when maliit-server crashed but that was because of faulty layout code.

Have you seen this with Sailfish OS 2.0.x or newer? Sailfish OS 2.0 included considerable amount of fixes for input handling.

Have you noted the date of the question and looked when the OP was last seen here on TJC?, last seen November 2014 - do you suppose he is still waiting for a fix after 3 years? :P

Yes I have and e.g. @nthn was active 21 minutes ago. My question was not only for the problem reporter rather for you all. This issues should have been fixed approximately 18months ago.

I had only loaded the front page, but I don't even remember having this issue so it was definitely fixed a long time ago.
