I am still having this issue in 1.6.2 (142).

After upgrading to 1.6.2 this afternoon, I tried a force-close of the app, and then a power-cycle of my phone, just in case, but it is still happening.

This is on an iPhone 14 running iOS 17.5.1

I can’t reproduce. Please open a new bug report, follow the BR template, and attach a screen recording of it happening in a new vault.

After some further experimenting, it’s just that the mobile toolbar vanishes while the keyboard is up, when in the properties. Once I tap out of the properties area, it’s fine - either I’m in the body of the note and the keyboard stays up, but the toolbar shows up, or the keyboard is collapsed again and the tab-selection stuff shows up.

I’m going to play with it a bit more to see if I think it actually merits being called a bug or if it’s just behavior that takes a little getting used to. I could see it going either way - it’s so much better behavior now, in a day or two I might think it’s perfectly logical. I do get both toolbars back when I’m done with the property edit.

If I do decide it’s a bug I will indeed open a new report.

Thanks for checking!
