I have a Samsung 10.1 Tablet and have been trying to reply to posts but am having difficulty.
When replying the cursor just jumped when typing. I might type the letter 'u' and then the cursor will jump up to the first 'u' in the quoted part. I have typed carefully, one finger at a time, to make sure i am not bumping anything and I am not.
This also happens when I post on http://www.invested.com.au but doesn't happen when I post on somersoftcom.au/forum.
I tried to get around the problem by typing in another document and copying and pasting, but once you have the reply icon clicked you cannot paste for some reason.
Is it just me or is anyone else having the same problems?Jamie MooreParticipant@jamie-mJoin Date: 2010Post Count: 5,069
It might be time to cross over to the dark side Terry
I know how much you love apple products
I post from the iPad with no dramas – accept the odd auotcorrect typo.
I have an evil iphone and can post from that ok – its just too small. When my plan runs out I will be going for the Samsung Note.mattstaParticipant@mattstaJoin Date: 2011Post Count: 604

will be opening it up soon and playing with it – hopefully to access the forum on it too.
Hopefully there's no dramasNHGMember@nhgJoin Date: 2010Post Count: 198
I've already mentioned it to Terry,
My Acer Tablet (Transformer Prime) adventures have been far from positive. It's a nice toy, impossible to do any real work with.
Also jumps when I reply to posts.
Can’t go the tablet thing. Wife has one (Android) that keeps her out of my hair (most of the time anyway). Droid OS has a long way to go in my opinion especially on tablets. But no matter how problematic they are I definitely won’t buy anything starting with “i”. I’d much rather have a netbook.AdministratorParticipant@administratorJoin Date: 2006Post Count: 131
We’ll definitely look into the issue. When you press a key (when typing a reply), do you mean that the blinking insertion point cursor moves and positions itself next to a same letter that is already in the reply text? What happens if the letter doesn’t already exist?
Just trying to clarify the problem

thanks for looking into this admin.
for example, in the above post i pushed reply quotes then i typed the letter t. the blinking cursor immediately jumped up to where i typed xx. in this case it didnt jump up to a corrseponding same letter but just to the front of the quote.Terryw wrote:thanks for looking into this admin.

Seems to run alright on the old girls tablet. Actually I’m surprised how well it runs. This ones an Acer. It’s just gone through an update so I’m not sure what version it’s running .
It’s definitely not doing what Terry’s is doing so it may be a problem on his end
OK this one is android OS 4.0.3 Kernel 18.104.22.168+
Definitely runs OK on this sitemattstaParticipant@mattstaJoin Date: 2011Post Count: 604

Good idea Matt. I just bought a few of those pens – try dealextreme.com they have heaps of cheap IT stuff for a few dollars including postage from HKRichard TaylorParticipant@qlds007Join Date: 2003Post Count: 12,018
When i try to open up PI.com on the wife's new Ipad it says i cant open up the site becos i need Adobe Flash Player.
Then when i try and download Adobe Flash i am told that i cant download it for an Ipad.
Anyone used Skyfire and if so can you log into PI.com with it on an an Ipad.
No problems accessing PI Com on the Iphone but need my magnifying glass with every post.

I've been using the firefox browser on my tablet. works well and you can open multiple tabs by holding your finger down on the link for a few seconds.Richard TaylorParticipant@qlds007Join Date: 2003Post Count: 12,018
Downloaded Skyfire and all fixed.
Can get into PI.com from the Ipad.
On reflection still think the slightly bigger screen on the Samsung could have been the way to go.
