Bug: Basic (type the answer)

On iOS the input field of a “Basic (type the answer)” type note always appears at the very top, irrespective of where {{type:Back}} is placed in the template code. While this might be tolerable for the unmodified Basic type, it makes custom templates fail horribly and impossible to use. Please help! (Anki 2.0.67, iOS 13 and 14, iPad and iPhone)

AnkiMobile places the text box at the top because of the on-screen keyboard - if it’s anywhere but the top, it may not be possible to see the text you’re typing in on a smaller screen.
