    i'm having real challenges getting the keyboard to appear and stay displayed in tablet mode. i'd love some help!

    i have the clipboard (table) undocked and i'm using the pen. occaisionally when i click on a field (e.g, the address bar in Chrome or the fields on this window to enter this text) nothing happens...no keyboard appears (i've been using the handwriting keyboard, but NO keyboard appears). Or, sometimes i'm writing on the handwriting keyboard and it goes away...i can't figure out of my gestures are dismissing it, but i sure can't get it back, either.

    the only way i could enter this text was to dock to the keyboard and type it.

    any suggestions?

    I think this is an issue with Chrome. Not being designed for stylus input. Does it to me on Chrome, but not Edge. Slowly getting away from Chrome and migrating to edge.

    I'm having the same experience. I don't know if it's a problem or if it's the way it supposed to be. However, to get the keyboard back after it goes away is to select the keyboard icon at the bottom right of the status bar. I hope this helps.

    thanks for the suggestion, but here's part of the problem; the keyboard icon in the bottom right of the status bar is often gone so i can't use it to invoke the keyboard. it used to be there but it is often not there (ironically, this happens to me when i need it to bring back the keyboard). Can't figure out why.
