Surface Go keyboard won't work in Gimp or Clip Art Studio?

Stephmanagirl 1 Reputation point

The keyboard won't appear on these and I have reset imputs on them and also checked my keyboard settings and yet nothing seems to make the keybaord appear. I don't want to buy the keyboard just to use my go instead I want the built in keyboard to work. I also have the pen with the go so is that messing this up or is there some setting I don't know about?
This issue just makes my go feel useless, but I hope it is fixable.

Keyboard works on anything but these applications that are using my pen so I don't know what is happening here.

I found a solution by more intense googling, lol. I enabled the bottom taskbar to have the keyboard show up next to my wifi and battery. I went into gimp and was able to force the keyboard to appear by clicking this taskbar shortcut. This is not perfect but thank God it works.

    I hope it'll be okay if you change the USB connections.
