after updating to Android 11 I noticed that Gboard doesn't always pop up when I enter a text field - Messages, Hangouts, Keep, Chrome, etc. the only way is to lock the device, tap device to bring up unlock/keyboard, unlock and then go about using the app I was trying to type in. if I switch to another app, Gboard stops working again. I've tried clearing Gboard cache with no luck. Switching from Gesture Nav to 3 buttons actually gets Gboard working again for a short while before it starts happening again. any suggestions?
