Android InputField Keyboard Showing Light Gray Text on White background, Hard to See

I recently noticed that when I bring up the keyboard on 2 of my tablets from an InputField, the text I am inputting is a very light gray on a white background. At first I thought it was not showing the text at all, but now I noticed it’s there, it’s just VERY difficult to see.

I only bring up the keyboard one time on a fresh install (which I don’t do very often), so I’m not sure when the problem started to show itself.

I’ve read that it could be an Android Manifest setting a Theme or something like that, but I don’t have my own manifest file. I’ve downloaded some assets from the asset store, but creating a simple project with them in it does not reproduce the issue.

The text during typing looks okay on my Galaxy S3 phone (black text on white background), but not my 2 tablets (light gray text on white background).

The screenshot shows the word “test” in the edit area, as you can see it’s almost impossible to see.

Anyone have any ideas? @Yury-Habets @sirbrialliance

I found a fix that worked for me. I put the below line in my Assets/Plugins/AndroidManifest.xml file in the section.


Full line:

application android:label=“@string/app_name” android:icon=“@drawable/app_icon” android:hardwareAccelerated=“true” android:theme=“@style/UnityThemeSelector”
