Check Android > Settings > Keyboard (there might be many keyboard settings) if you have problems. (e.g. the virtual keyboard or other information menus appear by pressing a keyboard's button).
Samsung devices have their own keyboard settings with various options that might be helpful to turn on or off (in addition to the Android keyboard settings).
WSA (in Windows 11)
As at March 2023, our recommendation is to leave all settings off for iReal Pro:
Windows 11: WSA > Compatibility > iReal Pro
(Feel free to play around with these settings as Microsoft update these options in the future.)
