How do you use the mouse and keyboard support on console?

Question

I bought KSP Enhanced Edition on Xbox One, and mouse and keyboard support was advertised. I load up game and it just says "press "A" to start." None of my keyboard inputs are recognized, and it seems that I have to use a controller. 

Note: my mouse and keyboard inputs aren't recognized in the main menu either.

I am completely new to this game, so I might be missing something.

I’ve spoken to support about this very issue, and it appears “full keyboard support” was never intended, despite using that exact phrasing on their release about the game. In short, they lied, and my understanding from their response was that there is no plan to incorporate actual functional K&M support.

This was blatantly deceptive marketing, and I’m surprised they got away with it.

While there is not currently full support for keyboard and mouse, keyboard and mouse are currently supported for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 versions of Kerbal Space Program - Enhanced Edition.

You will be able to utilize mouse and keyboard functionality as long as you plug in your mouse and keyboard prior to starting the title. If the mouse and keyboard are plugged in or unplugged while the title is running, they will not work again until the system is restarted. 

If the keyboard and mouse were plugged in prior to starting the title, but were still not functioning properly, please reach out to our support team at https://support.privatedivision.com/hc/en-us so they can investigate and troubleshoot the issue with you.

Hmm, perhaps taking a trip to the Microsoft support forums are in order?

 I had this same problem with K&M on the PS5 edition. The Keyboard I have is bluetooth. I think the control pad was 'connected' at the same time. Is that where i screwed up? Does it have to be a USB Keyboard?
