It means I cannot type anything at the prompt.

As I said, it works well when the terminal is at the bottom, but it
fails when the
terminal is on left, right or upper position.

I know. I have done what you describe for the longest time. But this
time I wanted to use the convenience of having everything in a single
interface. I believe that's what Kate is all about.
For now I have a left pane where I can browse for files and
click on them to open for editing, I have an upper pane where I edit and
a lower pane where I run the program.
