When typing my cursor seems to jump around the text box. I believe it just jumps to the front. For now, it seems random. If I notice anything more specific I'll add it.

I thought it was just how the site works from my home screen on my phone, but it's doing it still on my computer.

Thanks Vicki! I've not noticed this but sounds far from ideal so will try and reproduce. Could you let me know the devices/browsers you're experiencing it on?

If anybody else has noticed this also please let me know.

Honestly, I think I'm crazy. But it's happened enough that I think it's not just me.

iOS13 and Catalina, both safari.

Thank you! So we are talking about the text cursor in the post editor yeah?

Yes, that's the one. The blinky line that says "your text should go right here" and moves when you click on a new spot.

Okay, so it does it when backspacing. I thought that might be the common issue.

Could you create a screen recording? I'm on Android and Mojave and everything fine. Except the typical wysiwyg editor scrolling because it thinks to know better what you need to see. But the cursor us everytime where it should be.

Oh that'll be the spooky text box ghosts here just in time for Halloween. 👻 I'll call the ghostbusters.

Thank you for great info and recording. 🤗


Figures! I should've known it was just a feature. 😆

Not had this issue on desktop, but did a bit when using quotes on mobile etc.

Today I also had the issue on Android. Haven't found out why. I've pasted a larger text with some line breaks and after this it started to show the cursor in the wrong place and also added letters with no reason. 😲🤯

I vote for markdown editor without wysiwyg. 😅

Thanks all. The default editor is Froala which seems good but there is a newer major version I will try compile for us this week. 🙂
