Steps to reproduce
I was just writing a note yesterday. It seems to be connected to "copy&paste" but can also happen when Im just writing.
Out of the sudden the caracters transform into red and black dots in edit mode and they do that in steps. First a few, then more and more. If I keep writing they seem to multiply even faster.
If I change the note to view mode the red dots transform in a little box with the text OBJ. the black dots stay in place.
I tried to start om my device and started a new note, but the problem persists.
The red and black dots invaded my text.

I just disabled predictive text and was able to successfully edit a note (the first time since I’ve installed the mobile app!). But this isn’t a solution, just a temporary workaround; It’s not reasonable to turn it off when I want to use Obsidian, then remember to turn it back on for everything else.
