Option to hide mobile toolbar if an external keyboard is attached

Certain ‘mobile’ devices (e.g. iPads) can also sometimes have physical keyboards attached. There should be an option to hide the mobile toolbar if an external keyboard is attached, but for it to reappear once the keyboard is disconnected (so the user is using the on-screen keyboard).

The mobile toolbar is a waste of screen-space for anyone using an external keyboard who is familiar with the necessary keyboard shortcuts. Disabling such toolbars when keyboards are attached is pretty standard in mobile apps.


I would also love to see this. iPad Pro 11" is my primary device, and with the Magic Keyboard connected there’s no need for the toolbar to be present. I wish I could have it auto hide, or manually hide it.

Agreed. I use the “smart” keyboard on a smaller iPad. We see both the standard toolbar, and also a “keyboard settings” widget that takes up additional space. In a minimal, focused-style configuration, this would be entirely cleared, and I’d be using the physical keyboard only.

Thanks for this great software.
