    Basically, after the latest Blackberry Keyboard app update, all drop-down lists are now obscured by the keyboard, making picking certain options at the bottom of the list impossible. Using WhatsApp is pretty awful now too, as the keyboard seems to fight with the WhatsApp emoji drawer, and selecting emoji is extremely hit-and-miss (clicking on an emoji seems to switch back to the keyboard half of the time).

    Just wondering if anyone else is having similar to me after the latest update? I think I will have to switch to the Google keyboard until this is rectified.

    I have the same issue with the drop downs. I noticed it with spelling errors. When you touch a miss-spelled word the drop down list of suggested corrections is obscured.

    Ack! If that is in fact a new bug, it should have been caught in any reasonable testing scenario. Have these guys not heard of regression testing? Is this present on the Priv, DTEK50 or KEYone?

    From someone in my group chat with this issue, it only happens when there's no physical keyboard involved, i.e. a Priv with the keyboard slid down and the KEYone shouldn't have this happen. DTEKs and Priv with the keyboard slid up should.

    Yes. same problem here, with my Dtek 60. I have actually had this problem for three weeks...

    Another question that I can't seem to get my head around, is how can I actually choose the WHITE text which comes up right above the space bar? when typing place names or slang, which I do not want to be corrected...

    Swipe up instead of tapping the space bar to get the white text.
    I'm finding that the space bar now capitalizes too many words. Thinking of clearing out the memory and letting it start over.

    .
    Thank you so much.
    That now works perfectly for me and it actually even adds the 'new' word into the dictionary automatically, immediately after swiping up action!

    Massive help. Much appreciated
