Press + icon and panel does not show over keyboard (gesture apps)

Firstly, try Android Settings > Apps & notifications > Textra > Storage > [Clear cache]

If that did not work, then in Android Settings > Apps > (cog) > Draw over others app (sometimes called 'Apps that can appear on top') you'll see a list of apps that use this Special Permission.

One of these apps is causing the issue In Textra. To isolate which app is interfering, do the following:

1) Turn off this Special Permission for *all* these apps shown in this screen.
2) Check the + panel then works in Textra - it will...
3) Turn back on this Special Permission for each app one by one, and each time checking in Textra if the + panel is still working. This will identify the app causing the issue.

Then let us know, so we can help others by updating the list below.

Here's a list of known offenders:

* Navigation Gestures
* Fluid Navigation Gestures (fix currently on beta)
* Edge Gestures
* Glovebox app
* Fleksy keyboard
* Pie Controls app
* Keyboard Minuum
* MWmanager
* Button Savior
* App Swap
* iControl
* Note 3 Stock Multi-Window feature (turn it off)
* Permission Manager
* Add wave launcher
* Drupe
* Cleanmaster (if using recents page curl feature) 
* Swiftly Switch (& Pro) - workaround: in edge settings for Swiftly turn off the setting for 'avoid keyboard'
* Navbar
* Mobilego
* Omiswipe
* Easytouch
* Snap Swipe Drawer
* Meteor Swipe 
* Taskbar
* Bouncer
* Bottom Quick Settings
* J touch
* Multi action home button

NOTE: The developer of Fluid NG has found the fix and made that fix to his app (as it also impacted other apps, not just Textra). Thus if you reach out to the developer of your gesture app, please mention the following:

It's a bad 'flag' on the windows used by the applicable gesture app, so any of these flags causes the issue (thus remove these flags as the fix).

Remove WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_LAYOUT_IN_SCREEN
Remove WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_NOT_TOUCH_MODAL
Remove WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_NOT_FOCUSABLE
Remove WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_ALT_FOCUSABLE_IM
