bluetooth keyboard become non-responsive after uploading file

Mike Yuan 9 years ago in iPad updated 9 years ago 4
I am using logitech keys to go keyboard with bluetooth connecting. everything works great first. But after I upload file to the server, all the alphabet keys became non-responsive. but the other function keys such as home, multi-task, spotlight search still work. And in other apps, all the keys work.

I had to click on the "File" buttom to "refresh" app to get the keys functioning again. Not sure if it is just this keyboard but hope you could fix this bug. Thanks!!!

Does it work again if you do a single tap once on the editor area? This should make it regain the keyboard focus.
I tried again and it did not function correctly.

What i did was right after I typed something I Uploaded the file. after that, the keys became unresponsive. I finger tap the editor region and also changed the cursor location. and key are still not functioning. after tap on "Files" I observed the screen of app refreshed. It was after the refresh, I can type again.
I tried to reproduce the issue:

  • download a file from my Dropbox account
  • open the file
  • edit the file with an external keyboard
  • tap on the button in the top right corner and select "Upload this File"
  • select "Yes" in the "Overwrite files" alert
  • now the editor does not have keyboard focus
  • do a single tap on the editor
  • now the external keyboard works again
Did you do something differently? Are you using iOS 8.3?
I am currently using ios 8.3

I am using textatic on ipad mini 2

I encounter the issue when uploading/overwriting via sftp.

After I selected "Yes" in the Overwite files alert
My editor lost the keyboard focus.

now I have used finger on the editor, and even changed the cursor location on the text. but the keyboard still not registering except the extra function key shortcut such as home or search.

I realized that the finger tap only works occationally. and I can see the menu being "reload" on my screen. (I can see the menu "flashing" if you wonder what I meant)

and refocusing keyboard by tapping on "File" to enter access the file again or enter "Preview" does seem to help with the refreshing the menu but it is not 100% .

Is there a way to make the textatic reload the local file automatically after uploading?
