Android and TextLine
I have two questions about TextLine in Android.
1. When i press Enter on virtual keyboard, focus on TextLine is kept, but keyboard disappears. I can't find anything that can help me keep keyboard after pressing virtual Enter (i actually need to keep it when i also press some other Gui objects, so TextLine looses focus, i need it for my in-game chat), is there any solution for keeping virtual keyboard on the screen?
2. When i tap (very short tap) Erase on a virtual keyboard it sometimes erases 2 letters instead of 1.

Both tests were made with "08 - Loading Gui Objects" tutorial and two keyboards - Samsung keyboard and GBoard (google keyboard).

Thank you very much!

I can use it, but if i make a game for android i can't make all game users use it smile

One more thing i found: when i hold Erase (on the same keyboards) it erases only one letter, not like on PC when it starts erasing N letters per second.

Hi, I think this depends on the Soft Keyboard Software, and not on the engine.
I've tested:
Samsung Keyboard - deletes N characters per second, and stops until word is deleted
SwiftKey - deletes N words per second
GBoard - deletes N characters per second
