Can't scroll the viewport while typing in the caption field in Gallery>Images on mobile
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Steps to replicate:

  1. Open mobile VE.
  2. Go to Gallery>Images tab.
  3. Place your cursor inside the caption field.
  4. When the keyboard slides up, try to scroll down to see what you are typing.

It's not possible to scroll the viewport to the area. Works correctly for Gallery caption field on Options tab.

I can reproduce this. I think it's actually more serious that it looked like – it seems what whenever the keyboard is used while any VE dialog is open, the viewport is continually scrolled to the top. This makes it nearly impossible to type in fields in the "bottom half" of dialogs, such as the gallery image caption field, but also affects e.g. fields in the options tab of gallery dialog, and other dialogs like the maps dialog.
