Possible Pythonista 1.5 glitch: Alert text field not focusing with ext keyboard
[I use Pythonista on my iPad exclusively with an ext. BT keyboard. As such, the fewer times I have to take my fingers away from the keyboard to tap the ipad screen, the better. I hesitate to report this as an application bug as it really may be more of an iOS Bluetooth API issue]
Desc: When using any of the filemanager features (e.g.,renaming/creating folders) that brings up an alert requiring text input, you have to tap the field first before you can begin typing into that field via a BT keyboard.
Example: In filebrowser pane, tap 'Edit', then tap 'New Folder...' which brings up a 'New Folder' alert with a blank text field (for the user to type in the name of a folder) with a blinking cursor. However, at this point no text typed on a BT keyboard registers. Once you tap into the text field, text can be typed as expected.
Other: Occurs with Pythonista 1.4/1.5 on iOS7/8.0/8.1/8.1.1 with at least two different brands of ext keyboard (ClamCase Pro and Zagg Folio) on iPad 4th gen and iPad Air 2.
Again, I know this a fairly minor issue but I figured I'd report it.
As far as I know that's a bug in Pythonista and has been reported before. I have the same problem with an Apple Wireless Keyboard, but only within Pythonista, other apps with such dialogs seem to correctly change keyboard focus.
In fact this seems to be fixed in the 1.6 beta version.
Yeah, this is an issue in IOS 8, the update should help. It happens in Editorial too.
