This is my biggest gripe. It has the potential to be a deal breaker.
I’m going to expand on one of the issues I identified in my “wish list”. To wit:
Lemme’ try some images to 'splain this better. This is what I first see when I go to reply to a thread or an individual post within a thread:
So far, so good. A blank posting window ready to go . . . unremarkable.
But then this happens:
I can make the software keyboard go away (on this Samsung tablet, that’s pressing the “volume down” physical button), and then long press and get the “PASTE” pop up, and then paste the composed post from my text editor.
That’s actually what I do for any post that’s either lengthy or may require some thought.
But for quick, short, and simple replies, it’s much more efficient to just type the reply right into the posting window. I can’t do that.
This is a potential deal breaker.
However, it may not be the new board SW. It may either be my own failure, or just something unique to mobile devices (in which case, neither I, nor RO_admin, would be able to remedy.)
Other software I have locally does not do this, nor did the old board SW. For example, my M$ Excel performs nicely. If a cell I want to select is hidden behind the software keyboard, I simply collapse the keyboard, select the cell, and then the cell automatically scrolls up and the keyboard reappears just BELOW the selected cell.
I would have PM’d @RO_admin on this, but I chose to put this on the open forum because I know there are other users here with mobile devices. For example, I think @WhoIsJohnGalt uses an iPAD for posting. I’m wondering if he, or some other mobile device user, can tell me how to fix this.
On the off-chance it was the browser I was using (FireFox), I tried another . . . Chrome . . . and got the SAME behavior.
Also cleared the cache . . . TWICE . . . and still no joy.
What the heck am I doing wrong? (I’m hoping to have a real “duhhh . . .” moment, smack my forehead, and move on.)
