    This is an issue for me both on my iphone and ipad. Whenever I’m typing a post I’m unable to select/highlight a specific part of the text. If I press select on a word I’m able to select only that word and if I try to move the little pins on the side of the word it automatically selects the entire post.
    If I press ‘select everything’ and try to adjust the selection it just glitches and I’m unable to move it where I want.

    Other people must have the same problem. I just bought a new ipad and it’s the same problem on that one too. Really annoying when playing WW.

    This is the true reason for which you wanted to make this thread, isn't it?

    Yup, I only wanted to brag about my new ipad so I just found an excuse to mention that :p

    Sike, already did that in the ‘what’s your most expensive item you have bought this year’ thread. Just mentioned it to show that it wasn’t because of my old outdated devices.

    Another problem with chrome on iPad iOS 12 is the keyboard obscuring the written text. Doesn't happen always though.

    Yessss, I’ve been WONDERING about that. Infuriating, as it makes it difficult to properly respond to long winded posts while on the iPad :lol:

    I don't really reply to posts on my phone anymore. For some reason when typing you can't scroll up or down, which makes typing anything longer than a couple of sentences impossible. It just shakes and judders a lot. Anyone else get this?

    Same problem here. Glad to hear it’ll be sorted eventually. Thought it was an iOS12 glitch.
