I had the same issue, as did many other users, months ago with Gboard and SwiftKey. Here's what tech said on the matter in February. It is worth noting that SwiftKey pushed an update which fixed this issue since February. I'm not sure if Gboard ever pushed an update. I will check with tech to clarify.I'm using GBoard and just disabled the swipe stuff and it still happens. Also just tested in 2 other apps and a different website in Chrome, and can't replicate the issue anywhere except ResetEra.
ResetEra also seems to disable Android's "Clipboard" functionality when copy/pasting. It only gives me the option to Paste, Select All, and Paste as Plain Text.
Hi! #tech here. It seems that the most recent Chrome/Android update produced this typing bug. Currently all we can do is waiting for a fix from the Chromium project. Meanwhile, the following workarounds should help address the issue until a fix is available:
a. Downgrade to the previous version of Chrome/Android (63.0.3239.111, Released in Dec 2017). You can download the APK file here; note that you might need to uninstall current version of Chrome first.
b. Switch to BTE (Basic Text Editor). A button for switching is available at the top right of the quick reply area (the document icon). There is also an option in user preferences to use BTE by default.
c. Though we cannot say for sure that this bug would never occur to other keyboards, it seems that switching to keyboards other than SwiftKey may greatly alleviate the problem.
d. Other Android browsers, such as Firefox, does not seem to be affected by the bug.
We will keep updating on this issue. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
For all that stuff that everyone hates and they like, all they ever say is "it's a design choice" and they don't seem to want to change it.Can we get even an acknowledgement of why the color scheme isn't being changed? I really don't understand this. You say you've addressed the "top 3 complaints" but you completely ignored the obvious number 1 complaint. Completely baffling why such an easy change is being ignored. At least let your community know if there is a reason for it.
It would be really cool if you could filter feeds ... like how you can block certain people... if you could block Threads that would be amazing...Hello all! We'd like to first apologize for being quiet on this front lately. In addition to working on this update, we've been getting our ducks in a row regarding some long held ambitions, and today we can finally talk a little about that. It can be difficult to balance day to day work with community engagement, but going forward we're going to make a stronger effort to show our faces in this thread.
For immediate release we have the ResetEra 1.5 update which fixes numerous compatibility issues with the Safari browser, provides relief for the forced mobile view bug, and also introduces a new variable width feature for those of you who hate wasting horizontal space. Based on your feedback these were three of the biggest issues that users had with DayEra/NightEra and we have dedicated a considerable effort to address them.
At the very bottom of the page desktop users should now see a button like in the image above. Pressing it will allow you to toggle page width! The full list of highlights from this update include:
We hope you enjoy the changes! Please report any new or persisting issues in the new 1.5 bug report thread.
- Changed "NSFW" options title to "Image Options"
- Made changes to reduce the chances of desktop users receiving a forced mobile view
- Mobile scaling issues should now largely be fixed
- Added min/max width options for variable horizontal width
- Improved Safari compatibility
Now let's talk about the future. In our last update we explained that the DayEra/NightEra designs are not part of the same project as ResetEra 2.0, but rather a standalone that would help bridge the gap. We promised some months ago that ResetEra 2.0 would be released before the end of 2018. Those plans are now beginning to mature.
While some work will continue in the interim on DayEra/NightEra, we have recently made special arrangements for additional help and resources for ResetEra 2.0 in order to ensure that development will proceed smoothly and in a timely manner. After considering the totality of your feedback, we examined our options and determined that making ResetEra 2.0 an urgent priority made the most sense for the community in the long term.
The wheels are now in motion, and we look forward to sharing more in the coming weeks. We will be using this thread to do so.
Yeah it does this on the Night theme for me as well.
Thanks. Basic Text Editor fixes it.I had the same issue, as did many other users, months ago with Gboard and SwiftKey. Here's what tech said on the matter in February. It is worth noting that SwiftKey pushed an update which fixed this issue since February. I'm not sure if Gboard ever pushed an update. I will check with tech to clarify.
And LightEra too. While I appreciate the effort that had gone into the continued development of the site, I'm still on the legacy theme for a number of reasons, and the shade of purple is very high on the list.
My fear is that 2.0 won't change that much. Mobile First!
