Website: No focus of text fields on touch devices

When switching to other views, very often a text field in the left panel gets the focus.
On touch device this leads to opening the soft keyboard, which covers a lot of info / buttons.
In most cases I do not want to enter anything in the text field, but have to tap twice (2nd tap to close keyboard).
Example:

  • “Plan” view, no route loaded
  • tap on “Cloud” → close keyboard (covers folder list)
  • tap on folder → close keyboard (covers route list)
  • tap on route (no keyboard :+1: :wink:)
  • press “back” button in left panel to go to folder → close keyboard (covers route list)
  • press “back” button in left panel to go to folder overview → close keyboard (covers folder list)

Therefore I suggest not to focus the text fields in left panel on touch devices - in the cases when I want to enter text, I have to tap on the text field, but in most cases I do not use them.

Thanks a lot for the suggestion, that could indeed make sense.

What do others think about this?
