Without a keyboard, functions like plot and help can't be used. Maybe add a button which can enable the OSK for alpha entry.

Yes, there are several cases where the keyboard is still necessary, though the primary use case for Calculate are improved by the recent addition of the cusor and back space canvas buttons. The OSK is intended to be raised using the OSK Frame Device icon (see the lower right Frame area). This was intended as the fallback for all cases not covered by the Input Methord auto OSK pop-up, unfortunately there is an open bug for that case, where a manually raised OSK is not passing on any keyboard events to the widgets/activity.

FWIW: Help and Plot features in Calculate need a better UI, not had time to work on these this cycle.
