[Bug] Blogging with an iPad jumps all over the place

So I’m sitting at the airport with an hour’s flight delay and I decided to write a blog. I remember DJ Adams raving about the blogging platform (can’t find the reference), but my experience was quite the opposite

I don’t travel with a laptop, and am using an iPad and bluetooth keyboard, Safari browser. Originally it started out OK, but as I filled up a screen and saved a couple of drafts, the display would jump whenever I used the cursor keys. It basically scrolls down a page each time I use the cursor. Horrendously annoying to work with!

Another small bug (feature?): I’m a rookie blogger (yes really! At least on the new platform), so my blog had to go for review. I noticed a typo, but unfortunately once it’s in for review it can’t be edited. Is this deliberate? Not a biggie, I can edit once published, but just thought I’d mention it.

    Hi Mike,

    The second part of your question (re: no edits once it's submitted for review) is accurate and by design.

    The bug you're reporting with blog edits on iPad is new to me. This would need to be investigated further with our support team. I'll forward the info and see what we can find out.

    Best,

    Jamie

    Hi, Mike:

    As Jamie noted, we reported this to our support team, but they were unable to reproduce it.

    At this point, all we can do is monitor to see if others report the same issue.

    Best regards,

    --Jerry

    • Hi, Mike:

      Sorry, somehow I overlooked this.

      I'll share your detailed explanation with support and get back to you. I'll make sure they take Vadim's comment into consideration as well.
