You could try powering down the IPad completely and restarting it.i recently installed version 15.1 and ever since have had problems typing in email and web browser. it comes up with blue box and unable to use space bar to separate words. any ideas or solutions please?
see attached screenshot. This happens trying to use Apple keyboard. When i use touchscreen keyboard it works ok?I can’t think of anything that would cause this.
Are you using a hardware keyboard (Bluetooth or Smart), or the touch keyboard. If you are using the touch keyboard, is it the default Apple one, or do you have a third party keyboard app installed?
Can you supply a screenshot? Please make sure you’ve obscufred any personal information befor uploading.
I also thought it might be the keyboard so I purchased a new Apple keyboard and it still does it. Thanks for cropping the image I appreciate it.It looks like it’s in some kind of selection mode, but I’ve never seen anything just like that. I‘m wondering if the keyboard is damaged, so that it’s sending some key modfier constantly, but I can’t think of any key modifier/combo would do that.
Looks like this is the Gmail app. You said it also happens when you use mail from the website? Using Safari or a different browser? Does it happen in any other apps that allow you to edit text?
I‘ve removed the email address from your screenshot. Better not show it in the open forum, for security reasons.
Not entirely about this specific problem, but, with 15.1, what’s with the numbers and symbols on the alphabetic keyboard? You have to use the number keyboard to get to them, so, what good are they on the regular alphabetic keyboard? If they wanted to be helpful/ useful, they could have somehow gotten the most used items from the number keyboard and added them to the alphabetic keyboard. Bouncing between the two is annoying!i recently installed version 15.1 and ever since have had problems typing in email and web browser. it comes up with blue box and unable to use space bar to separate words. any ideas or solutions please?
