#8648 closed Bug (worksforme)

Unable to place cursor in correct position on Android Browser 3.2

Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: Core : Selection Version: 3.6.2
Keywords: Android Cc:


Using CKeditor on an Android tablet, I was unable to select the correct position in the text.

Tapping on the text would highlight all the content briefly before placing the cursor at some point earlier than the position selected. The Cursor seemed to be "more wrong" the long the text got (it was pretty close near the top, and several paragraphs early near the end of a 200 word article).

Steps to reproduce:

-> Go to (or one of the nightly demos) on an Android tablet. -> Type until the text is long than the textarea -> Try to tap to put the cursor in another position in the text.

Yes, sometimes I noticed that problem while testing an Asus Transformer, but I think that the problem lies in Android, as that's the one that takes care of positioning the caret.

You should try to file an issue at their tracker: stating that it's related to contentEditable

Works for me in stock browser in Android 4.2.1 (Jelly Bean). The cursor is placed correctly.

Please re-open if you find that it does not work in a version newer than 4.2.1.
