Docking the Keyboard on your iPad

Sometimes, you may find that that the keyboard on your iPad gets placed in the middle of the screen, making it difficult for a patient to read their form. The solution is to "dock" the iPad's keyboard using the instructions below, keeping it fixed to the bottom of the screen.
