Hiya, extensive pro-subscriber here. Had the pleasure of using DynaList on a cross-country trip, using Windows, MacOs, iOS, and Android.
I frequently found that single and double taps to edit line-items, most notably on iOS using an iPad Pro, and occasionally an Android phone, resulted in… nothing.
Steps to reproduce
- Create a new bullet in a list of similarly formatted bullets
- Type something like: “Text goes here: [Text for a link](a fairly long URL goes here) // #tag1 #tag2 #tag3”
- Navigate between a few bullets, or move to another App like Reddit or Chrome
- Tap the screen (or double tap) to edit the previously created line-item
I would expect to be able to edit the line item
Absolutely nothing, almost as if the app is frozen.
I keep tapping, getting closer and farther away from the end of the line and the linked text… and every now and then… it might work. Or it might not work… no way to edit the bullet. So I will then close all the bullets, refresh the app, maybe close it and restart it… go back to the bullet, and… it will work again. But not sure why.
My best guess (though I don’t have evidence) is that… because whenever you tab into a link… the app expands the link-text to markup-text, that the resulting tap-targets to change accordingly? Or break entirely?
Overall, being unable to reliably know where to tap to edit a line with a link instead of going to the link proved very time-consuming.
iOS - Dynalist native Client & Chrome browser (very frequent)
Android - native Client and Chrome browser (sometimes)
Does not appear to happen on OSX or Windows
Version was up-to-date as of 5/27/2018 at the time of repro, verified no additional updates available.
Anything else you think would help our investigation, like a screenshot or a log file? You can drag and drop screenshots to this box. For large amount of text, try putting them into something like Pastebin.
It’d be great if tap-targets could be more obvious/reliable for lines containing a combination of text, markup, links, and tags.
