Obsidian closes the softkeyboard when switching to a different app and back

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open any note
  2. Enter editing mode
  3. Tap in any part of the note that opens the softkeybord
  4. Open your recent apps, “task overview,” or whatever you call it
  5. Switch to a different app
  6. Open recent apps again
  7. Switch back to Obsidian

The keyboard is closed. Other apps don’t do this. They keep the keyboard open when you switch to something else and back.

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N]


Expected result

The softkeybord should stay open or at least reopen when switching back to Obsidian if it was previously open.

Actual result

I need to tap to open my keyboard. Horrible when switching between apps and taking notes.

Additional information

This text box actually has the same issue. The URL bar of my browser does not, however…

Is this a new thing with 1.5.8 or was this always happening?

I just tested 1.4.16. It works correctly there, so, yes, this is a new issue.

will be fixed 1.5.9
