Android Keyboard is stuck on numercal KB

REPRODUCIBILITY (% or how often): Once so far
BUILD ID = OS VERSION (Settings > About product): Suomenlinna (4.3.15)
HARDWARE (XA2, X10, X10 II, …): X10 II
UI LANGUAGE: German
REGRESSION: (compared to previous public release: Yes, No, ?): No

DESCRIPTION:

The OSK of android is limited to the numerical format (i.e. only numbers visible).

PRECONDITIONS:

No idea.

STEPS TO REPRODUCE:

  1. Start android app for example in my case Whatsapp
  2. Create a new message in some conversation

EXPECTED RESULT:

The alphanumeric keyboard shows up correctly

ACTUAL RESULT:

The numeric keyboard is displayed.
When pressing enter, some keyboard settings from android side is displayed

(option to enable some remote keyboard)

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

Blocker as it is non-recoverable without rebooting (restarting android service wont help)

Please have a look there, maybe it helps.

Thanks to @nephros !

In my case, this bug occured with SF apps, not Android,

Thanks for the workaround / cludge!

I entered this command into Shellex, so I can execute it whenever needed, without CLI action or having it in mind.

still a bug it remains :slight_smile:

Yes.
