Onscreen keyboard

  • I would like to use Opera on my Surface 3, however, the problem is that the onscreen keyboard does not come up when the cursor is a field that requires to input data. Be it to enter the URL or any field on a website. Is there any option to fix this?

  • I'am looking too for a workaround.
    On my Surface Opera opened the onscreen keyboard by touching a field, but not by clicking with touchpad. That was really nice and usefull, but only untill today. With the today Update to 36.0.2130.32 this feature is gone. Now, no onscreen keyboard appear by touching on a field. Why?
    Is there any fix?

  • i have the same problem with onscreen keybooard. it doesn open automatically when i touch the field. How to fix it?

  • Same problem with my Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 with Windows 8.1 . The onscreen keyboard does not come up, when I touch text field in Opera interface or web pages.

  • I also have a Lenovo Tablet with Windows 8.1. The on-screen keyboard has worked perfectly in previous versions of Opera. It's only now, with V36 that it does not automatically pop up anymore. I hope it is not a deliberate change. After all, V36 was meant to be more touch-friendly (wider spacings etc.). Has anyone issued a bug report?

  • how and where to create a bugreport?

    Now there is already a second thread on the same topic:

  • AFAIK it's known and being worked on.

  • Me again...

    in the time between my last post and now, they fixed the problem. The onscreen keyboard was appearing by touching any textfield. But today my Opera updated to version 38.0.2220.29 and now this very nice feature is gone again... Why?

    There is a workaround https://forums.opera.com/post/96379 but this only works if i start opera from desktop, not if start it from taskbar...

    anyone any idea?
