Prior to UI 6.1 the keyboard button, when enabled was located on the right side of the navigation bar. Following installation of UI 6.1, it moved to the left side, and only visible when the Samsung keyboard is not present. When enabled, and using alternate keyboards (e.g., GBoard, SwiftKey, etc.) as default, the keyboard button is in lower left side of navigation screen. It is visible because the microphone button is not present.  As soon as the keyboard is changed to the Samsung keyboard as default, the microphone appears, removing the keyboard button. Even when the microphone button is turned off, I guess it's placeholder hides/overwrites the keyboard button. Recommend moving the keyboard button back to the right side of the navigation bar so there is no longer interference.

 Gboard keyboard (could also be SwiftKey keyboard) with keyboard button in left corner. Prior to 6.1, this was in right corner.

This looks like it could potentially be a bug, but I'm not sure. To fix it, you have to go to Settings>General management>Samsung Keyboard settings>Voice input>None. This will disable voice input but will allow the button you are looking for to appear. If the button is not there after turning voice input off, go to Settings>General management>Keyboard list and default and make sure "Keyboard button on navigation bar" is enabled.

That setup does allow return of the keyboard but then loss of voice input option as you described. If they put the keyboard button back to the right side of screen on next update, it would probably fix both issues, having availability of both voice and keyboard buttons.

Very much appreciate quick response!

When using Samsung keyboard, you can press and hold the microphone icon and change from 'voice input' to 'input method' (which will show the keyboard button).
