No option to Disable the Steam Keyboard????
Please can anyone tell me how to disable the incredibly annoying keyboard that pop ups whenever I press the stick.... no matter what option I set to that stick? also, why when I have to CLOSE the STEAM KEYBOARD the entire Steam Beta clients closes?

Uh, are you minimizing BPM, dont do that. The KB will not open unless its minimized. The normal shortcut for in game is steam+select.

Got it... but still there should be an option to just disable it. Because I´m minimizing BigPicture because I keep coming back to set up the controller....actually I´m losing a lot of time understanding the different options and trying them in the game...and now I have to close and reopen BPM on each try to not get the annoying keyboard?? agggghh

First, you exit that keyboard with B, not the close button in the corner.

Second, you have Big Picture Mode minimized. If you exit big picture mode instead, then you won't get this behavior.

ANother point is that in the changelog for the update to add this feature Valve openly stated that changing this binding will be added in a later update. You will get your wish, Valve said so :)

Sure, but that doesn't make assigning it to left stick any less stupid of a decision on Valve's part.

Thanks guys....but sometimes....THERE IS NO LOGIC on the changes...and that is one of the main issues when configuring the Controller. I think that now I understand where all the problems are coming from. This joystick..is not a joystick for windows...is a keyboard and a mouse...therefore...whatever we config in the Big Picture mode...is the layer where later we have to re config in the game... BUT if you modify it in the BIG PICTURE mode..not all the changes are reflected in the game instantly...and that is TERRIBLE. For example this RIGHT STICK KEYBOARD in Big Picture....after I quit the BP... I cannot still reassign it to SPRINT in the Battlefront GAME...no matter what I select..is not reflected in the game :(

For one I know battlefront has a few little hiccups but do a search, I havent played it but I know for fact there are some nice threads and even a couple videos that show how to get it going seamlessly. As far as config in BPM, have you use Joy2Key at all? I am genuinely curious because the SC menu is actually rather nice and easy as pie compared. Sure, may be a little rough in some places but it's way better that OCT16th and gets better ever update they make for sure. bind the stick click to anything, as long as BPM has not been deliberately minimized before you launch the game it works fine.

I too have no idea why stick click was chosen. In game it is Steam + Select so why not just use that for consistency.

Please separate your sentences into relevant paragraphs and tone down your uses of ellipses. It will go a long way towards making your posts easier to understand and read. Also, please avoid overusing CAPS. That's the equivalent of yelling on the internet.

Also, if you launch a game from big picture mode, you're not supposed to exit big picture while it is still running.

The kb always displays while game playing, it really disturbs!
holy hell please fix this ... I am so tired of having to quit games and restart because this damned useless keyboard wont leave my screen.
this is getting really annoying. Whenever I try to sprint in-game, the keyboard pops up and ive done everything on this page to try and get it to stop, yet the keyboard still pops up.
Go to Settings, Base Configurations, Desktop Configuration, and deactivate "Click Action "on the Conroller stick ;-)
That´s it. Have Fun
Thanks so much dude! You really saved my butt!

No problem, I search for hours for this XD and, if you have a two monitos setup, and the mouse arrow goes to the second monitor if you move the Right stick, go to the Game in Big Picture mode, and Deactivate the Right Analogstick in the Contoller option at Menue.

Steam is very Funny in this "Function´s" XD
