Ipad geogebra just became terrible to use.. New keyboard??

In Progress

I have been using the Ipad version for over a year now, almost daily. Despite the insane amount of bugs...

Today's update seems to have fixed a problem with the zoom, which is great! But now the default ipad keyboard pops up every time i try to enter text or numbers. This is really difficult to use, compared to the integrated keyboard geogebra already has... Please remove this feature! It does not work well! It takes up half the screen, moves things around, and has less keys (no sqrt etc).

What version of iOS are you on? Have you just updated that?

I am on 13.3. No updates recently. However, according to the app store, geogebra was updated automatically yesterday to version 6.0.573. "bug fixes".

This is when my problem started.

I want to mention that in setting dialogs I have no cursor, writing blind.

Mads do you have copy&paste on classic/ipad?

Hawe. Now that you mentioned settings, I tried opening settings from the menu, and now it just closes again immediately...

If I go via "right clicking" on a certain object, I can open those specific settings, however.. And yes, it seems I have copy and paste functionality. There is also a cursor blinking where I click..

The cursor thing has always been a problem for me before, though.. I've always struggeled to enter things in the settings.. having to write one letter at the time, the keyboard going crazy and entering the letters as double, making me have to delete letters again.. very confusing.. But this is stuff I've come to accept from Ipad geogebra.. This new stuff is however completely dysfunctional..

Mads, thanks for reply.

There seems to be very inconsistent effects on the different ipads. I have ipad pro 10.5 / iOS 13.3 and the classic app is , especially in CAS , nearly unusable.

The “new stuff”, do you mean the new apps? Fully agree!

and as long as they stick to the editor it will stay that way - at least on touch devices

At my school we experiencing the same problem.

The native keyboard keeps popping up when the students tries to interact with the geogebra keyboard.

This is critical. Exams are coming up, and they need to practise on a working tool.


Pleas update us on this issue..

Having the same problem: iPad keyboard keeps popping up when I type in the input line. I am running iOS 13.3.1 on my iPad. This was a problem before I updated the iOS this weekend. I was hoping the iOS update would fix the issue. No luck! Please fix!

Thanks,

I’m having the same problem using the web based versions of GeoGebra on my iPad. The iPad keyboard keeps popping up when I try to use the input line.

In Google Chrome the webbased version works well.

Here's another workaround: https://stackoverflow.com/q...


Go to Settings -> Safari -> Request Desktop Website -> All websites. You notice "All websites" -> DISABLE

We are on iPadOS 13.3.1, too.

Its a big urge. Please fix.

I wasn't aware the problem as still around! Mine has been working fine for a couple of weeks now..?

Still on 13.3.1, by the way.

13.4 was released yesterday, and not available for my Ipad yet. I'll try to remember to mention how it works there too, when I upgrade.

Ipad pro 10.5 IOS 13.3.1


After some worktime app became unuseable:


the Cursor starts running to the beginning of the line and stay there- preferably after an app change (switch to safari and back) . Only restart possible to end this feature...
