Description

With the new reworked control since 2.7.0.x, there isn't any keyboard option to write in some games, or at least, it's impossible to bring it if you don't assign it to a physical button, so those games are totally unplayable now.

Older ScummVM versions has a button to bring the keyboard at any moment, at the same space where you can change now the control scheme. Now this icon is gone.

It should be cool to add again that button, maybe as an optional icon to bring the keyboard, added by settings per game, alongside the change control scheme icon.

Thanks.

Hi, I don't know if the feature is mentioned on the documentation, but if you "long-press" the control icon it should bring up the virtual keyboard.

Totally correct, is there https://docs.scummvm.org/en/v2.7.0/other_platforms/android.html#virtual-keyboard

So closing as it was my fault, although, some mention to it in the Back-end tab could be very useful.

Thanks.
