Google Docs, used to work.

Forum
iOS and iPadOS

New version seems to have broken something. I updated today, and now I can't seem to access words or lines or anything inside the control that holds the text, editing seems to be impossible now. I just made a backup this morning, so I think I'll go back to the previous version by deleting the app and putting it back on with itunes. If anyone else uses google docs and there is an update available, be cautious.

Hello, can you be a bit more specific as to what you are using to edit, on screen keyboard, external keyboard or Braille display? I know I am using the most current update and i worked to edit 2 documents one from scratch this morning with my Braille display and iPhone 6 without seeming to experience issues other than the voiceover indication "selection deleted" rather than indicating what character or words have been removed.

I'm using the phone with no keyboard or display. If I double-tap on the text to get to the end, I can't scroll back line by line to figure out what is at the end of the document, touching the control moves me back to the top. Everything was fine until the update came out yesterday afternoon. I've rebooted, reinstalled, and finally just gave up on it.

I can't even use the website docs for abouta year now. They said they improved but looks like they broke somethingin both now. This by the way is ont he mac side of things, not ios.

Hi again, I am still a bit confused as to how you are trying to use google docs without any type of keyboard connected to your phone, or the onscreen keyboard. Sorry to be so dense.

Hello all,
I am having a bit of trouble finding where to perform a spellcheck on the iOS version of google docs. It seems in the past I had found this item but I can't do it at this point. Any thoughts and is this accessible with voiceover?
