Long Text Entry not working on tablets (iPad) if Markdown Editor is ON

    I have had multiple reports from form users that they are unable to enter any information into any of the Long Text Entry fields on my form.  Clicking into the field shows a flashing cursor but no text appears in the field.

    Please can you investigate

    While checking the form you shared, I could not replicate any issue with Long Text Entry fields, text appears properly:


    I have tested the form on Tablet and PC (several browsers). Can you kindly specify which device/browser is causing the issue?

    Thank you for the response.  I discovered that if I disable the 'Markdown Editor' option on the field, it can be used on a tablet device.  This resolves the issue for the time being but it maybe something to look at moving forward.

    I was able to replicate the issue on an iPad device when Markdown Editor was set to ON.

    I will forward this to our developers and we will let you know when there is an update.
