Description Erik Renaud 2015-07-07 10:48:00 UTC
While using Visual Studio 2013, Xamarin Forms 1.4.3 and the WP 8.1 emulator, we are having problemes when using an Entry control in xaml vs using the Editor control.

If you put the Keyboard property to Text, the Editor controls behaves correctly and text suggestions show up immediatly. On the same page, the Entry control with the Keyboard property set to Text has weird behaviors where the suggestions do not show up immediatly.

Could you please provide me a sample project? so that I can reproduce this issue at my end efficiently.
