Closed, InvalidPublic


Screenshot of iPad simulator

iOS 5.1 simulator on Mac OS X. Screenshot attached.

iOS's selection handles overlap the arrow button we add, so it can't be clicked on.

Version: unspecified
Severity: normal

Moving to "Mobile" component.

Something very similar happens on my Android phone. However, if I blur the editor and refocus it, the first cursor I get upon focusing doesn't have a selection handle, but if I then move the cursor, a selection handle appears.

Regarding Android, I've raised a similar issue at Bug 51270.

The mobile version of VisualEditor doesn't do text over-lays to avoid issues like this bug. Closing as INVALID now that work there is progressing.
