Not a solution to your question, but did you try with an Android keyboard?

working for me , but I’m on 4.0… I think you need to click ‘show virtual keyboard’ in Android settings…

Have you tried to connect and use virtual keyboard after that? For me too the keyboard works when configuring the connection.

seems ok…

I suppose you didn’t find a solution yet, did you? I have the same problem since SFOS 3.

Are you able to use Citrix with SFOS in any way? Using a hardware keyboard (either Bluetooth or USB) does not work because neither capital letters nor special characters can be typed with a hardware keyboard in the Android support environment (while hardware keyboards work flawless in the SFOS environment).

I suspect that the missing virtual keyboard within Citrix virtual desktop (as opposed to locking into Citrix) is somehow related to Citrix itself. However, in the “old” Android support environment (SFOS 2) I was using the virtual keyboard with the Citrix virtual desktop.

At the moment, Citrix cannot be seriously used with SFOS - that’s a pitty.

Any hint would be highly appreciated!

Same problems with latest Microsoft Teams … I need to open a new case dough
