I posted on the forums about this previously and it was suggested to me that I submit it as a bug fix/feature request. I submitted a bug report and was redirected to the forums once again so here I am with this feature request: (On an android device) I would like a way to keep the mobile TouchScreenKeyboard open when focus changes to a different UI element. This would include being able to interact with unity in the visible area while the keyboard remains on screen. The current implementation forces the mobile TouchScreenKeyboard to close when its focus is lost. This is not ideal and not consistent with keyboard behavior in most other android apps. This prevents me from creating a smooth experience where, for example, the user can input text which is used to show results of a search. When the user tries to select a result, the input is ignored and the keyboard goes away. The user cannot interact with a scroll view or any buttons while the keyboard is on screen. Almost all android chat interfaces allow users to do this, I would love have this functionality in Unity to give the user a predictable and consistent UI experience. Here's a google drive link to a sample project showing this problem using Unity 2020.1.0b13. Just run on an android device and tap the inputfield. When you try to interact with the scroll view or button, the input is ignored and the keyboard hides. Thank you!
