    You mean it deselects after releasing the sym key?

    It deselects when pressing sym and then a symbol. The symbol is inserted and the typing field is cancelled. So you have to select it again and adjust the cursor to continue writing.

    This is a messenger bug. Facebook needs to fix it. Try the same behavior in any other application.

    What I'm seeing is:

    - start typing
    - /hold/ sym key and type as many symbols as I want, like a bunch of digits
    - let go of sym key and field is deselected

    If you're pressing the sym key + another key for each symbol you're trying to type and you're typing a lot of symbols, then it would be pretty annoying, as every time you let go of the sym key, it will deselect the field. For multiple symbols, just keep on holding the sym key until finished. As for letting go of the sym key deselecting the field, it may be a bug or not, as pressing the sym key once and using the virtual keyboard also deselects the field after symbols have been typed.

    I found the Messenger Lite works better. I miss some of the vanilla features but eh.

    Same behaviour in slack threads. IIRC on slack channels it works correctly, but while typing in a thread it's broken. Might still be the apps' fault though.
