iOS handwritting to text screen

Asked: Dec 17 2018 | 9:49 am EST 906 Views 0 Answers

on the iPad Pro 10.5 with smart Keyboard Folio attached the handwriting to text screen keeps popping up. It takes up nearly half the screen and breaks concentration when typing. (It even pops up when typing here.) Is there a way to turn it off?

contacted Apple Support Chat and their answer was to downgrade from the Public Beta but they didn’t say that would fix it. Today is a slow day at the Santa WorkShop so I have the time but not the internet connection to downgrade. And then there is the fact that I like the Public Beta.

this is happening on all the iPad Pros: 12.9 original, 9.7 & 10.5. It happens in Pages, Numbers, Safari, etc.
