Not fixed in latest stable version.  Works for 30 min or so then Xamarin Studio needs to be restarted..  Very frustrating.

To be clear: Text can not be entered in search field in upper right corner of screen. You enter the field and try to type text for your search, no characters appear.

Just hit this myself in the (C8) 6.1 Alphas :(
Comment 14 Tom Gilder 2016-11-17 11:37:07 UTC
This bug requires me to restart Xamarin Studio several times a day; and 5 times in the last 10 minutes. Hugely frustrating. Please please please fix.
Comment 15 Doron 2016-11-17 11:47:09 UTC
When the IDE gets to this state, you can't search at all. The omni search on top right does not work and also search in files does not work. So you basically have no way of finding any file or type and must restart the IDE.
Comment 16 Miguel de Icaza [MSFT] 2016-12-15 22:14:12 UTC
I wonder if someone has some steps to reproduce this?  I talked to the team and while they have looked at this, it has been hard to reproduce.

Meanwhile, I wonder if we could add some debug button so we can dump the responder chain
Comment 17 Tom Gilder 2016-12-15 22:16:54 UTC
I've tried but failed to figure out a reliable repro but failed, but it happens every single day for me, at seemingly random times. Very happy to help with any logs/dumps when it occurs.
Comment 18 Martin Kuckert 2016-12-20 13:29:30 UTC
Everybody in our team has seen this even with the latest stable release. I don't know how to reproduce this - it just stops working after some time. I have the impression it's related with a huge number of debug sessions or with suspending macOS during a short break and leaving Xamarin Studio open.

Comment 20 Marius Ungureanu 2017-01-13 17:18:51 UTC
Thanks to the repro from #51469, we have a fix. This will be deployed to all channels.

The searchbar corruption happens when opening build/signing panels for Android/iOS/Mac project options.
Comment 21 Andy 2017-01-13 21:47:26 UTC
I oftentimes get this issue without ever having opened build/signing panels.

Comment 23 Marius Ungureanu 2017-01-14 15:09:39 UTC
@Andy, you might have opened them by mistake (when traversing project options), this is the only root cause that would cause native keypresses to end up being ignored by Cocoa.
Comment 24 Marius Ungureanu 2017-01-16 12:23:20 UTC
The next build refresh on each channel should bring in the fix.
