Hi all. My first post ever here ;-)
I would need some help in finding a way around a new “feautre” in iPad OS since the Mrch update (13.4). The keyboard shortcut for “Activate” (VO+Spacebar) acts in a new, sometimes erratic way that is driving me nuts.
Let’s take Mail.app: I start scrolling the list of emails and when I want to select one to read it or copy tet or whatever action, I was us8ing thye usual “Activate” key combo. ButVO+Spacebar now oepns a sort of contextual menu allowing me to Reply, Reply to all, Delete.... There is not even an optin to “Select”or activate. The only way out is to use ESC (a quite awkward vO+grave accent, in my keyboad language). And then, even worse, the mail may or may not ahve been in fact selected. Cannot find a logic.
Same bizarre “I won’t select what you are clicking on but open a new floating menu” happens in iMessages, in some parts of Safari... and even in some third-party apps such as twitter. It is like having performed a long press or right click, except it is not.
I tried to assign a different keyboard shortcut to “Activate” but to no avail: same things happens.
So this must *not* be an error according to Apple, as the same things still happens in iPad OS 13.5. I am forced to remembver to select with finger double-tap onthe sceen in those places where I have discovered this “activate does not activte” behaviour, but I find new surprises each day, and being forced to switch between keystrokes and figer taps for a simple activate is beyond frustrating. I am finding myself replying to emails different that the oens I ntended as the activate shortcut did not select the email I thought it will etvc.
Is there any way to “fix” this? Or a way around?
Thanks in advance.
