Hi. There’s a bug on iPad - there’s a massive blank section where soft keyboard should be when keyboard is hidden/minimised. Have to pop up keyboard & hide keyboard again for list of drafts to be fully shown.
This is an iPadOS issue. It’s been minimized in updates, but the system sometimes fails to deliver the proper keyboard hide notifications to apps. Especially when running split/multiple windows. Hopefully Apple will have this fully addressed soon.
As you noted, the workaround is to edit-stop editing.
