When I go into ‘Search’ and select ‘Search by Name’, the screen comes up with a Seach Box and Button, but there is no Keyboard with which to input data. The keyboard appears on other occaisions eg when I create a POI.
I am running OsmAnd Version1.5.2 beta on Android 4.2.2 (on a Tesco Hudl).
How to I get a keyboard on this screen or is this a problem in the ‘beta’ vesrion?
When I followed your search (search->POI->Search by Name) I also don’t see a keyboard appear. But if I tap in the search field the keyboard is displayed. I guess it could be cleaner, but you can get to a keyboard to enter your search.
Try holding on the input field (like for copy/pasting), select “Input method” and switch between keyboards (to force a reload, works only if you have multiple software keyboards installed) or check if the hardware keyboard works. Or try a full reboot (via “Reboot”, not via “Shutdown” (which often is actually suspend)).
Another idea: If the cursor is already in the input field when it appears:Try unfocusing the input field (i.e. change the focus to a button using a DPad/arrow keys/whatever) and refocus it (=tap it).
@n76: I can confirm the behaviour you described, and yes, Android allows applications to open the keyboard automaticly. Maybe someone could write a bug report for it?
