Custom keyboard with search bar not behaving

I guess I'll try this list as well.

I’m implementing a custom keyboard for iOS. It contains a UISearchBar the user can use to filter the “keys” they can use to type. When the search button is used, I call [searchBar resignFirstResponder] to have the search bar give up its capture of input. The insertion point has been and still will be blinking in the document view, yet calling [self.textDocumentProxy insertText:s] no longer inserts text into the document.

I thought this was working earlier in the project development. Any ideas? I see a similar feature working in Google's Gboard. Maybe I need to use a fake search bar so the text input chain never gets disturbed?

BTW, I've only tested from the Simulator available on my work Mac, which is still maddeningly stuck on macOS 10.10.

What does [UIApplication.sharedApplication.keyWindow performSelector:@selector(firstResponder)] give you?

It correctly shows it to be the UITextView I currently have in the wrapper app, both before and after I activate and cancel the search bar. It seems like the UIInputViewController's textDocumentProxy isn't handling the change in input views properly.
