I am often using the Apple bluetooth keyboard to work on my iPad, but I realized that when bluetooth is on I have no way to get my iPad on screen keyboard to reappear. I was wondering if anyone knew how to do this without having to disconnect bluetooth each time.
Is there a way to tell the iPad to bring up the onscreen keyboard? The wireless keyboard connects and the onscreen keyboard disappears. I found that I can press the CD Eject button on the wireless keyboard to bring up the onscreen keyboard. What if the wireless keyboard isn't handy? Isn't there some way to bring up the onscreen keyboard from the iPad itself?
There doesn't seem to be any way to get an on-screen keyboard when the iPad is still connected to a wireless keyboard that may be in the next room. All I see is that I could un-pair the keyboard, and I guess I could pull the batteries out of the keyboard, but there's no way to force the keyboard off otherwise.
Quick question for those of you that use your iPad in meetings to take notes. Do you use the onscreen keyboard or BT keyboard or the dock? Not that it's an issue but everytime I pull my ipad our I get bombarded with questions!!
When a friend of mine tries to create a new email, or reply or forward an existing email, the on-screen keyboard will not pop up. He is using MSN.The on-screen keyboard does pop up everywhere else when it is needed.I don't have an iPad, but I am the only "Mac" guy he knows, so he came to me for an answer. Of course, he didn't bring the iPad when he came to ask me.
Have iPad 64gb Wifi, just upgraded yesterday, seems that Keyboard no longer appears in Safari, Composing Emails or any other apps. When inputting text in any input area the keyboard would automatically appear, now the screen just grey's out. Any idea how to correct?
On the 'full site' I can't type a new email or reply, etc, as there is no keyboard onscreen - only able to type in the "To" and "Subject" fields...anyone else? (mobile site is fine - but not to my liking)
I have a simple request for the iPad's onscreen keyboard. Given the size of the screen in comparison to the iPhone, it seems a bit ridiculous to me that the keyboard doesn't contain the number keys at the top of the keyboard and that you are required to go to another page to select numbers. If people are concerned with taking up more room on the screen (I really doubt this would be an issue, especially when measured against the benefits), Apple could instead offer it as a keyboard option just like they offer a few different versions now. Anyone have any thoughts? If others agree, is there a way to communicate this to Apple?
When I am using the onscreen keyboard on my iPad2, the input is sometimes getting duplicated (for example: if I press the letter 'N', instead of showing up once on the screen, it shows up as NNNNN). This is not limited to any single key. The only way to resolve this is to restart the iPad. I have reset and re-installed iOS 5.1.1 but hasn't helped. Any recommendations of what to do or should I be looking to schedule a Genius bar
Onscreen keyboard won't appear On certain websites -- especially ones heavy on flash - even though it's an area for text input, I can't get the keyboard to appear. Is there any way to force the keyboard to show?
I have an ipad 4th gen. There supossed to be a little microphone icon on my onscreen keyboard, between the " .?123 " key and the Space key. This is so I can talk instead of type whenever I am using this keyboard. while on the internet. Not there.
(when I open the Chrome browswer on the Ipad, there is a little microphone on the search bar... and it works... .... so I know this device is capable of voice to text pretty accurately (with internet connection).
Is there a way I can get the microphone on the onscreen keyboard since this is the main onscreen keyboard which opens for almost all the apps.
The onscreen keyboard on my iPad Air (ios 7.1.2) disappears abruptly while typing in a text field. Each time I was typing in the Spot Light search field (or any text field for that matter) I took great care not to tap the area on my screen other than the keyboard just to be sure the keyboard doesn't disappear on its own. I've also tried the hard reset by pressing down the power and the home button simultaneously. These fixes were only temporary and the issue in question has been coming back rather intermittently. It is very annoying to keep swiping down to open the spotlight search field each time the keyboard vanishes for no apparent reason.
