Does anyone have a weird thing happen when you try to edit a message on your phone and the original message starts to get scrambled? So if I post a message saying ''Steps are cancelled', and I wanted actually to say 'Steps are not cancelled', I edit and try to add in a 'not', but it changes to 'Steps are notnot cancelancel' and stuff like THAT. It ends up looking a bit like:

I use Android... So does @Tisch and he gets the same weird thing happen.

I guess the solution is just to get the message right first time but thought I'd see if this is a common thing that might have a fix. I added a 'some people have real problems' tag myself so don't worry I'm not being bullied.

I get that all the time when making posts AND editing... I assumed it was just me! The secret I've found to dealing with it is to move the cursor to the end of the word BEFORE the part you're editing, add a space and type the new bit, then delete the existing text. It seems to be a problem when you type something in the middle of a word then press Space, as though that mixes something up. I'm not sure any of this makes sense :D

Ooh OK thanks. I will try that next time! Oddly I don't get it at all when I'm making posts, but I get it every time when editing (which happens a LOT because for some odd reason I only read over a message after I post it - which is probably why I don't get it when I make posts, because I never go back to edit until I've posted!)

I do remember having a similar issue occasionally a while back, but not for a long time.

I used to get this but I’m sure it was on laptop. I think it was an issue with a spell checker or something. I’m stoned so cant remember

The problem I had before is sorted but I still have a weird thing with starting a new paragraph on the mobile version, where it creates the paragraph but the text I then type stays on the same line, not the new line. It may be an issue with Google keyboard rather than Moopy though

I have this, and I had it on old moopy as well.

We'll see if it goes away with the server upgrade (it might be php related), and if not, I'll see if I can find anything about it.

It’s a VERY MINOR issue but I don’t like how we have to press two buttons to edit a message. You press ‘...’ which pulls up a menu where edit message is the only option, which seems like an unnecessary step?

As someone who has to edit each message 16 or 17 times I’m finding it grating.
