If you start the first message of an account without old messages (no history) than the input text gets hided after writing some lines. In landscape mode if you start the 4. line and in porttrait mode if you start the 13. line the input text scrolls completely down behind the keyboard.

Update [2015/01/06]: Still in 1.1.1.27.

Don't start a new message from the pulley menu of the Message app. In this case the Recipient line is shown and you will not get into the bug.

Please select an account without a message history from the People app or from Call history and start typing in some lines. Try landscape mode as you only need to write more than 3 lines.

Attached 2 screenshots for clarification: image description

First screenshot shows the input of three lines into a new message in landscape. When pressing return all 4 lines scroll down behind the keyboard resulting in second screenshot: image description

Can confirm this behaviour. Pretty consistent. At least the bug behaves correctly :-P

Edit: can confirm that the bug with more detailed pre-conditions can be reproduced in 1.1.1.27 too.

Can't reproduce this; typing with Message app a SMS that has many lines to a contact w/ or w/o existing conv history works fine, display scrolls correctly and no lines get hidden behind the kbd in #SailfishOS 1.1.1.27.

Edit: can reproduce the bug, when typing SMS to an empty conv from not the Messaging app, but landing to there e.g from People app or recent call/msg log.

@jjaone: Just checked. Still in 1.1.1.27.

Don't start a new message from the pulley menu of the Message app. In this case the Recipient line is shown and you will not get into the bug.

Please select an account without a message history from the People app or from Call history and start typing in some lines. Try landscape mode as you only need to write more than 3 lines.

@axaq is right, I can reproduce it too using that method.

Yes I agree, when SMS is written not from Messaging app the scrolling problem can be reproduced. In the original problem description (to which I responded) there were no mention about the specific conditions that seem to cause the problem.
