    Since I did an update only a month ago the keyboard now sits in the middle of the screen instead of where it usually was (at the bottom of de screen).

    It's gotten to de point where I can't fill in online forms or searches etc because even when turning the iPad to Portrait angle for viewing its still in the way 50% of the time (and the text gets smaller).....

    Anyone got a way to change this or will I be better to revert to previous iOS!! (if that's even possible)....

    Thanks for any info!!

    I searched the discussions but only came up with other flaws not related to this:-(

    Thanks so much @Gabriel1!! :)

    It split first (got a heart attack as I'd never seen that before!!!)
    Then held my breath as I pressed merge and dock (only option left!!), and thankfully it's back to the way it used to be - Normal :)

    Whohoo!! Cheers!!!

    I'm glad that you got it sorted, it's always good to hear how folks get on with the advice given here.

    As for splitting, as well as splitting/un-splitting using the method shown above, you can also grab the two halves with your thumbs and drag them back together.

    Aaahh ok!! I guess I should get a book similar to 'iPad for dummies' haha lol

    Seriously, it's not one of my best investments! Wish I'd got the MacBook instead - at least that would load flash player:-(

    Thanks again:)
