    Whenever possible I always use the landscape keyboard but have noticed that sometimes in messages (and web browser) that if I spot a mistake and use the trackpad or touch the screen to go back and correct whatever I type on the keyboard will not appear in the text.

    The keyboard still responds as you can see the popups for the keys when you press them but the text doe not go into the box. The only way I found to cure this is to close and reopen the keyboard and everything then starts working.

    I am running the recent OTA firmware update on a completely unrooted unbranded Desire.

    Cheers

    Hi, I've found same issue. Also helps exit from landscape mode and go back in. Not sure if reboot of phone helps, but it looks like it fix issue for some time. I've tried to us different keyboard, but it still occurs.

    I have this issue too, but I've found the only way to fix it is to restart the phone (except with the HTC Incredible, same thing). It really gets annoying.
