Option to type answers with keyboard is no longer appearing (android)

I always type the answers instead of using the word bank as I learn better that way, but as of today the option is no longer appearing?

I've tried reinstalling the app and that didn't fix it.

Me too. I'm really getting sick of DL's baffling and infuriating changes to everything. It's like they have no respect for their users. No announcements, no explanations. There is no reason whatsoever to stop people from disabling the word bank if that's how they prefer to learn. Their development team is seriously dysfunctional in the way it does stuff like this IMO.

Same here. I find that I miss subtle details by using multiple choice and the word bank. The only downside about typing in the answers it that I sometimes miss the recommended way of answering the questions. It would be nice to have more guidelines defined for how the problem needs to be answered.
