Message+ Keyboard Minimize

I recently upgraded phones and now when using Message+, after sending a text, the keyboard no longer minimizes on it's own. Why would anyone ever want to keep the keyboard open? I notice there is now a minimize button in the lower left hand corner that didn't used to be there. I cannot find any setting to make the keyboard minimize automatically on message send. The Message+ version is 8.1.5. Anyone know of a setting for this feature?

We definitely want you to be able to personalize the keyboard in message + so it minimizes automatically. I'm not showing that setting, since the phone is allowing you to continue a conversation if you want to. Here's a link with the details of the settings for Message+: I hope that helps!
