Cursor position jumps when starting to edit on tablet
Open, Needs TriagePublic


When I want to start editing on my tablet (iPad), I open the NWE, wait until it is fully loaded and tap the part of the source I plan to edit. However, the cursor always jumps to the first position within the editor (before the very first character) and I can only get to the position I chose in a second step. This can be extremely annoying, especially when the part one wants to edit is somewhere hidden in the middle of a complex source and has to be searched for again after the cursor jump. I encounter this in different browsers, but I don’t think that the behaviour has been like this for a long time; in the past I only remember it happening when I wasn’t patient enough to wait for the editor to be fully loaded.
