iPadOS - Actual cursor and cursor graphic disconnect when switching back from another app

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open Obsidian 1.0 on an iPad & start a note
  2. Switch to a different app (Zotero, in my case) and select text with your finger.
  3. Switch back to Obsidian.

Expected result

The cursor to be where I left it.

Actual result

Since updating to Obsidian 1.0, depending on where I selected text in the other app, the blinking cursor indicator is either several lines below where I left it with an invisible cursor a word ahead of where I left it OR the cursor indicator is where I expect, but the actual editing is happening several lines up.

Additional information

Please help. I use Obsidian for everything. (And thank you for making it!)

Didn’t test extensively but can confirm unexpected cursor placement after selecting text in another app (Safari) on iPadOS 15.7.

If text is highlighted in Obsidian, the selection stays put after selection text in another app.
