After recent update to my S6 Lite tablet the virtual keyboard no longer displays when tap on an edit field with S pen in a custom app.  Can tap on field with finger and keyboard appears but no longer with S pen.

Has anyone else had this problem and is there a fix?

Does it give you the small floating icon that has a back, space bar, and enter button? If so, you can write with the Spen anywhere you could normally type, and it will transfer what you wrote to text.

Yes but this is a custom business app and really require the keyboard to appear.  In some parts of the app users need to enter numbers in a grid field - previously, the number keyboard would appear and after enter a value and click the 'Done' key the cursor would move to the next field and the keyboard would appear again ready to enter the next value.  That no longer happens.  Using the S pen no longer does anything when selecting an edit field of any type and this is only after the last update.  Using a finger or other stylus brings up the keyboard but not continuously when moving between fields like the S pen previously did.

Have played with the S pen settings but can't fix problem. Am currently advising users not to apply update but need a fix.
