Ranorex Version - 7.2.1

Immediate help would be much appreciated :D

I'm afraid, Ranorex 7.x is way too old and no longer supported. A lot of things have changed since 7.2.1, including Android support, so there is no point to even consider debugging your problem with 7.x. Please try to reproduce your problem with the most recent (supported) Ranorex 8.3.3 or 9.0. Generally speaking, I believe you have to use SetValue action on Android, instead of key presses, which are not supported.
