Can't drag notes on Canvas after typing in one

Have tried this and found the same issue in the Sandbox.

Steps to reproduce

I open a canvas. I can add notes, and drag them around the canvas.
I write in one note.
(Specifically, I write some random letters, press return, then write some random letters)
Then, while the purple outline is still active and the cursor flashing, I use the cursor to click outside of the note with the idea of exiting it.
However, the purple outline remains as does the editing bar above the note.
I then need to press escape to exit the note/remove the purple outline.
From this point on, I can no longer drag notes around the canvas until I close and reopen the vault. It is frozen. But, I can still edit notes

If I write one line of text and don’t press return before clicking outside the note, this doesn’t happen. The purple outline does go away and in these cases, I can continue to drag notes around the canvas.

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N]

Yes. And I used the sandbox.

Expected result

I expect to be able to drag notes around the canvas.

Actual result

Notes are frozen.

Additional information

I am using a Wacom pen input - Could this possibly be giving unusual click input?


I’ve found this also happens if I press ESC to exit the note.
That is, I open the canvas
I add a note
I type in the note, return, type
Then I press ESC to exit the note
But the purple outline does not go away
And from that point on I cannot drag notes around the canvas

Try with a mouse

Using a mouse seems to work.

It’s strange the Wacom pen and tablet I use cause the same hand cursor to appear over the note. When I click, they both show the hand symbol ‘grabbing’ the note. But, the note is only moveable if when using the mouse.

Is a fix for this likely to appear?
