[Android] Keyboard not always appearing in search

The android keyboard does not pop up every time I tap in the search field It seems to only appear sporadically. Quite often I have to tap in the search criteria edit box for the keyboard to display.

Interesting. I own one of those and it is my daily use device. I have never seen the keyboard not appear, and in 25 tries just now it appeared every time.

I wonder if there is a difference in settings. I use GBoard in multi-lingual mode, with Nova as the launcher. Fully stock ROM, not rooted.

Regardless, it will be difficult to fix if I can't make it happen.

I hear you. Pity. We have exactly the same setup, so perhaps as you say, a setting issue. Am pretty sure it used to work fine.

I see a related bug wth android chrome. I do get the keyboard pop up but I do not get the cursor in the input box and letters are not transferred to the input box. It happened here just now. I had to close keyboard. Go to browser settings. Then back out of there and try again. Other slower workarounds are to force stop chrome or clear it's cache. It happens with the forums on this site and with the search fields on some torrent sites but nowhere else And on two different android tablets. So far it does not happen with other android browsers though. And never with URLs only with text input boxes
