Description (last modified by Purduecoz)

When activating the keyboard (pinch motion) while running a game, the on-screen function bar that appears covers the bottom of the game while in landscape mode. This is worse on an iPad mini where there is less screen real estate, but it occurs on my 12" iPad Pro as well. Screenshots are attached.

I have a physical keyboard attached, and I'm running iOS 16.5.1 on my iPad mini and iPad Pro. Same behavior on both devices.

Just built ScummVM from master as of this morning, June 22, 2023.

I have now added a checkbox in the backend options tab to turn on or off the visibility of this function bar. This means you can now turn it off if you for example have an external keyboard with those keys, or if the game does not require them.

Note also that you can dismiss this bar (and the virtual keyboard) with a pinch out gesture when you do not need keyboard inputs, and bring it back with a pinch in gesture.
