Not showing the soft keyboard when a hardware keyboard is available is by design. The code checks if one is available:

However, I see that isHWKeyboardConnected() is not quite right for tablet mode (when you flip the keyboard around to use a Chromebook as a tablet device). It's only checking for a keyboard existing, not if it is hidden. When a Chromebook is in tablet mode it should return hardKeyboardHidden == HARDKEYBOARDHIDDEN_YES.

Ideally the soft keyboard button should also be hidden while the hardware keyboard is usable. I'll try to make a PR to fix both of those

Thank you. I should have clarified that I am using a Chrome OS tablet. Happy to test any changes.

Sorry for the slow update, I made a PR but then forgot to follow up on it. This was fixed in 53c22e4 and should be available in the next nightly. Please give it a test and if it's all good it will be included in the next play store release.
