[Bug] Cursor does not move to Tap location (editor mode)


[x] iOS - [ ] Android - Obsidian 1.0.4

Visual Description:

Steps to reproduce

When you first open a note in edit-view (and the cursor + keyboard are hidden)…scroll down a few window lengths, then Tap a line/character…

The screen jumps to the TOP of the note, and the cursor (caret) appears before the first character of the note (instead of where you tapped).

Expected result

The cursor would move directly to the Tap location. (The way it is on desktop - you just click where you want to type and the cursor moves to that line/character)

Actual result

The cursor appears at the very TOP of the note (before the first character).

Additional information

  1. The cursor WILL move to the Tap location IF the text-input area is already active (cursor flashing, keyboard visible).
  • However, when reading/scrolling a note in editor mode (keyboard/cursor not visible), tapping the screen ‘jumps’ the cursor (and view area) to the TOP of the note (not to the location of the new Tap).
  1. I have already disabled all themes and non-default plugins.

  2. This may be an iOS specific bug. I am using iOS version 12.5.4 (iphone)

- Do you have the same issue?

- Is there a way to correct the cursor location?

Are you also on iOS?

Someone in the discord reported that “Tap > caret location” behaves correctly on Android (so this may be an iOS-specific glitch).

Yes I am.
