Description (last modified by Wiktor Walc)

There is an issue with the Editor being used on the iPad (not saying it is limited to the iPad, but that's what I've been testing in) where the Editor will stop accepting any input. I can get this to happen in general when I'm switching focus between other INPUT elements on the screen and then try to focus on the Editor, but it is most easily repeated by using the styles/normal/font/size menus on the Editor itself.

All test cases were performed on http://ckeditor.com/demo#full

TC1

  1. Press "New Page" button.
  2. Select "Marker" style from the Styles dropdown.

Note: at this stage the editor looks like it has focus, the cursor is blinking.

  1. Start typing.

Result: typed text is not entered at all (and the cursor is still blinking).

4a) Touch the wysiwygarea to set focus, wait 2 seconds for the native context menu to appear and then start typing.

Result: typed text is entered and style is correctly set.

4b) Touch the wysiwygarea to set focus and quickly start typing.

Result: typed text is entered but selected style is ignored.

Touching the wysiwygarea to set focus before or after pressing the "New Page" button did not change anything, the editor behaves in the same way.

The problem with user not being able to type after using select dropdown happens with Styles/Format/Font/Size and also when setting Font/Background color.

TC2

Related to TC1, important to notice the difference between issues in TC1, points 3 and 4. Other styles like Bold also do not work in certain cases, I reported it in a separate ticket #12044

blackey: I'm experiencing this issue on an iPad 3, running iOS 7.0.3 and using the Safari browser.

wwalc: confirmed on iOS 7.1.1.

I made a similar experience using the editor in a webview inside my app. It seems that the textarea looses the focus after clicking in a menu (font, text color, text size). No keyboard input is accepted. Clicking exactly on the blinking cursor sometimes results in the expected behavior. This is only possible inside the simulator using the mouse. The behavior occurs in simulator on any devices with ios versions 6 and 7. It also occurs on a iphone 3gs with ios 6.1.
