Losing the keypad when posting

On an increasing number of occasions when using my iPad on this forum the keypad suddenly disappears and can't finish writing posts I may be halfway through. It may briefly flash up again but before no sooner can I resume typing the keypad goes again and usually doesn't come back so I have to finish the post on a laptop. Is anybody else having the same problem?

Sorry I can't help you with this... I don't have an iPad... was waiting to see if anyone else reported the same problem but seems not.

Unless they can't type a reply of course :oops:

I did have a look on forum software support and it doesn't seem to be a reported problem so I have to assume it's something local to you

I use an iPad and have no problems.

A bit of Googling suggests that they keyboard disappearing can be a problem on iPads if you don’t have a recent operating system and install the periodic updates. Older iPads no longer supported.

If you are using an older iPad that may be the issue.
