Why does my keyboard lose hotkey input?

    My iPad Pro was supposed to be less quirky because it runs iOS and not a full OS, but I'm finding almost as many quirks as my Windows 2-in-1s.

    Sometimes I lose the ability to hit Cmd-H, Cmd-Tab, and Cmd-Space (basically everything I use for switching between windows). I am on iOS 9.3.4. Sometimes this happens when I am running Slack simultaneously, but sometimes not. But more often when Slack is running. I thought it might also be my SSH client, but it also happens in Word.

    Does anyone else have this issue?

    Yessssss you're not alone man! Happens to me when I use splash top to remote into my Mac. Even after going back to the home screen /iPad UI the hot keys are...cold. Not working. No Bueno. Only thing I can do is disconnect the keyboard and reconnect. Or restart the whole damn pad.

    I wonder if anybody on iOS 10 beta has this issue of it's been fixed...

    Thanks, Ghost31 - was just wanting to make sure it wasn't some setting or something that was unique to my SW/HW combo or something. It is very aggravating. I get into a "rhythm" with hotkeys and when a system doesn't do what it is supposed to - it breaks my flow and my train of thought. Hopefully someone on iOS 10 can chime in!
