I can't write in Drafts in slideover

iOS and iPadOS


I have an ipad and I find it a great option for taking notes. Drafts is one of my favorite applications but I have a problem that I don't know if anyone has suffered:

If I am in Safari for example, and I want to take a note and I open Drafts in Slideover mode the physical keyboard of the ipad does not write anything. No matter how much I place myself in the editing field of the note.

Has this happened to anyone?

Thank you,

Maybe restart the device?

I've experienced it in other apps. I think this problem on iPadOS side. I have bad experience with VO focus on iPadOS in general. VO position can disappear anytime and you don't know when it will happens next time.

Very annoying.

Hm, I can't reproduce this, but there are a couple of things to try. Make sure you close all Drafts windows. Sometimes you either accidentally or on purpose end up with issues that way. Also try a restart. Otherwise, I'm not sure.

Sadly, if it's anything it probably is an iPad OS problem, but you could try writing to the Drafts author and see if he's got any ideas.
