Keyboard selections with Cloze operation select wrong text
with a keyboard attached to ipad
in editing mode in a Cloze note
move the cursor into the text
observe that it does something odd:
select using the above technique
note that other selection methods don’t have this problem.
I’m afraid there’s no simple fix for this - Anki uses Apple’s text editor to handle this, and it appears to be including the surrounding newline (“div”) when you select text that way.
But interestingly when handling Spaces in between words on a single line, Anki does take account of the larger selection:
Text: One Two Three
Selection: [One ]Two
Close: [[One]] Two
the space after the one is rejected and placed outside the close.
Can we do the same with with CR?
Spaces and newlines are represented differently internally, which is probably why Apple’s web libraries are behaving differently in the two cases. It’s possible that the situation will improve if/when AnkiMobile adopts the move to BRs that the latest computer beta has, but it is not something I’ve had time to explore yet.
