Caution APPLE USERS

I just upgraded to Apple iOS 12.1.3. Since upgrading I am have great difficulty posting replies on the forum. When replying to some longer post, when the keyboard is visible I am unable to see the cursor in thetext box. This is happening on a regular basis. I upgraded this morning.

I sent Floyd a PM.

If you already have this update, please let me know if you are also experiencing problems.

something - there are times when I give up, the cursor ends up somewhere else and I can no longer get text to register.  Sometimes I persevere other times I give up and don’t comment!

Edit I am using version 12.1.1 but have had this issue for a while ☹️

I’m typing this on my just-updated apple iPad and I’m not able to get this issue to come up....

The problem presents for me when I reply to a post that is a little long in length. The keyboard blocks the veiw of the text box and I can’t scroll the text box up and have it remain in place. The text box falls back down making the cursor position non-viewable.

... Danny: Apple iOS 12.1.3 does not make good AYW, and your device will likely blow a fuse during fermentation!

"works better" holding the iPad more vertical than horizontal.  

I'm sure to get this iPad fermented, it's been in the kitchen long enough and heck, there's rye flour in the cover!  Just don't know what country the "bugs" are from.   Since the security vacuum inspection in Frankfurt 4 years ago (very nice cleaning service, highly recommend the wait) I can narrow origins down a bit.

Thanks, Mini. I have been doing that, but if the page that I am writing the reply is very long, I still can’t edit the page corre tly. This is becoming a big problem for me. I have to give up and not post on some replies.

Floyd is looking into this.

Even on this post it is happening. If I scroll the reply text box up it won’t stay up. It falls right back now. I am typing blind to post this. I can’t see what I’m writing.

Hope it gets fixed soon.

Question - is it possible to go back the the most recent Apple update. Do so would either prove or dis-prove my theory.

ive had that too.  Dumped the bookmark history, powered off the iPad, and when back up, re-entered TFL   Seemed to work.

Just tried powering iPad off and nothing appears to have changed.

Next I’ll try dumping bookmarks and then powering off.

Not bookmarks, I’ll try clearing the browsing cache. I’d hate losing all of my bookmarks.

BTW - I couldnkt edit the previous post because of the problem. 

Thanks for the help

Thanks. That exactly what I’ve had to do. Good suggestion in case others have the same problem. 

Thanks

The problem of selecting text that is hidden by the Apple keyboard can be solved by using the Safari browser. The problem originally cropped up in the Chrome browser.

BUT the selection problem exist in both browsers.

when I was typing a comment, went to another tab for fact checking and returned to find my comment gone.  I'm using safari.  This is the first time that happened.  I often have several tabs open at the same time and Skype too!

I also have lost unposted replies more than a few times. No idea why this happens. When it s really bad I type the reply into notes and then copy and paste upon completion.
