[Linux] [Collab] Unable to type a description in the Collab drop-down menu after entering Play Mode

Package: Collab Proxy


Reproduction steps:
1. Open a new or an existing project
2. Enable Collab through the Services window
3. Enter and leave Play Mode
4. Open the Collab drop-down window and try to type in the description field

Expected result: You are able to type in the description field
Actual result: The description field does not respond to keyboard inputs

Reproducible with: 2018.4.23f1, 2019.4.0f1 (Unity Collaborate 1.2.7 - 2.0.0-preview.17)
Not reproducible with: 2020.1.0b12, 2020.2.0a14 (Unity Collaborate 1.3.7 - 2.1.0-preview.3)

- Not reproducible on Windows and macOS
- An Editor restart is required to be able to type in the description again

  1. Resolution Note:

    We believe this is an issue with CEF which has been removed going forward (post 2019.4). This issue will not be fixed in previous versions of Unity.

    All good, Unity support clarified this for me. To quote them
    The way the Collab package is implemented in 2019.4 and lower is different than the 2020.1 and newer versions. In the newer versions, Collab has its own window in the Editor, rather than a drop-down menu. Sadly, this functionality will not be backported.

    Thanks again for looking into this. Looking forward to Unity 2020.

    Hi guys, thank you for looking into this issue.
    Unfortunately this still occurs in Unity 2019.4.0f1 (LTS). I'm a confused by your resolution note. Are you saying that this issue will be fixed in all Unity versions after 2019.4.0? If so, should it be fixed in the version I've stated? Or will I need to wait for 2019.5.0?
