The setup

Suggesting an edit to some post on the Android app

The problem

If I ever switch from portrait mode to landscape mode (by turning my phone sideways), the Edit Summary box disappears.

Before switching to landscape mode After switching to landscape mode (and back)

Before and after changing screen orientation

On the left is the normal behavior. The right image shows what happens after I switch to landscape mode and back; notice how the Edit Summary box is missing.

This problem is 100% reproducible on my phone.

The specs

Nexus 5 running Android 5.1.1, Stack Exchange app version 1.0.68.

    Repro'd on v1.0.69 beta. To be exact, the edit summary box will disappear when changing the screen orientation (as per this post's title). This also occurs when the starting orientation is landscape, then rotate to portrait. Commented Jul 24, 2015 at 8:50

This will be fixed in 1.0.84.

Orientation changes on Android are weird.
