    It seams like keyboard_virtual_status() does not recognize the correct status after app has lost it's focus.
    The onscreen keyboard disappears and no way to turn it back on.
    Step event:
       if (!keyboard_virtual_status())
           keyboard_virtual_show(kbv_type_email, kbv_returnkey_go, kbv_autocapitalize_none, true);
    I use GMS IDE and runtime
    Tested on iOS 13.1.2 and Android 9.0

    Would appreciate any help.

    I saw the same thing. I managed to work around it by checking is_os_paused() and closing my input box and the virtual keyboard if so, then not actually checking the keyboard_virtual_status when opening the input box.
