Android Question EditText when editing disappear.

I am encountering the same issue described in an older thread : when I tap on an EditText to type into it, I get exactly the same result as the picture here :
A large bubble over the keyboard, and a small button on the right, which says "next" if several EditText are on the screen, and "Done" when it is the last one.

I am not so sure it is Android bug : it does not manifest with other apps. Could it be a feature, that needs to be turned off to make sure to edit in the layout ?

I have pursued tests about the strange behavior of the EditText.

Here is the behavior of an app comparable to what I am creating, where the edit fields behave as expected:

Here is what happens with my app. I am presented with the keyword and a big bubble above which shows the hint text. There does not seem to be any way to go back to the screen of the app ; I have to click next (Suivant) and cycle through all the fields, until I can finally click OK and come back to the screen of the app.

It looks like there is some option that will allow or not the bid bubble data entry, as opposed to the expected on screen entry.
