Delete Key is still sticky

Issue #1930 that was opened here:

is still affecting the keyboard. I would have lost a reasonable chunk of text if I had not quickly intervened by tapping another key. The backspace key kept deleting the text as if the key was pressed down.

Sorry to hear about that. Can you provide us more details on what you were typing when it happened?
Did it involve the suggestion banner and backspace?
What kind of app were you typing in?

The biggest challenge we have for resolving that issue is getting a reliable scenario to trigger the condition.

I was typing one long paragraph and another shorter one in the local language about Gambia, in Google Notebook app. Then as I went a step back to make some corrections, the backspace key kept deleting text as I they key was pressed down.

It doesn’t involve the suggestion banner.

App in use: Notebook by Google
Keyman version: 14.0.280
Android version: 8 (Oreo)

Here is the text I typed:

I was in the second paragraph, and went to correct something in the first, when the issue arose.
