    An easy way to have your keyboard in any application is to set it as a side convenience key.
    Go to options/keyboard, and you will see it there.

    Once set, you should be able to open and close it when you need to

    By the way, it is listed as virtual keyboard in the choices.

    have you tried swiping it down?

    if you hover your finger on the top row of the keyboard, so the keys highlight, and slide your finger down it should hide.

    it may take a couple of tries.

    You might want to change compatability mode for the App. Options/Advanced Options/Applications. Scroll dowm to bb maps, then hit the bb button. Comfirm that compatability is not enabled.

    Glad we got you fixed up. I don't understand why compatibility does that with some programs. Kinda annoying if you ask me.
