    Over the last week or so I find my 64GB Wifi plus 3G iPad has (new iPad) started having the keyboard disappear when I am trying to type. For instance if filling in something online, ie for the Travelodge web site, I try to enter the place I am looking for a bed, and I get one letter typed, and the keyboard goes, I touch the typing bit again, get another letter typed, it's gone again

    Has anyone else had this problem and if so, what did you do to overcome it.

    I have had these since they first came out and got my first one from the States but never ever encountered this problem. It has Apple Care on it, so not a huge problem as I will have to go into my local reseller! as we moved.

    If a website hasn't finished loading yet, the keyboard will drop. So my suggestion would be to wait until the page is fully loaded before typing.

    Hi Carol - in addition to Johanna's excellent advice, and if not already done, you might want to go through the steps quoted below; first, 'Force Close' the browser (assume Safari); if not successful, 'Restart' the iPad, and if still not effective, then do a 'Reset' (directions below if not familiar w/ the maneuvers) - let us know if these steps help - Dave :) P.S. welcome to the forum!

    Hello Carol,
    Does this happen after pairing a bluetooth keyboard?

    hi

    No it seems to be with chrome browser, I prefer safari, but chrome lets me see tabs open on other machines, like my phone and iMac. I have done a reset but hVent used it much for I filling forms, which is when it happens. I must pay more attention to see if it is because the page hasn't downloaded next time. It isn't all the time
