Something is amiss then, as I cannot paste anything? gently caress (but thanks for the vid!)

I've noticed that with app I have to hit the blank area twice sometimes for the paste command to come up. That could be it.

Also you could open notepad and see if it pastes in there.

Ugly In The Morning posted:

Last read markers are loving up somehow, itíll show the right amount of unread posts and send me to the last page instead of only showing unread.

That's curious, Awful should just be doing the equivalent of clicking the unread posts link on the website. Is it one thread in particular? Any chance you've read some of the thread on another device or in a browser and Awful was showing an old unread count?

the yeti posted:

Looking at the announcements, for a while awful was displaying LABís av by lowtaxís name:





Going to lowtaxís profile displayed his actual ability and after that the app seemed to show it correctly on the announcement as well.

Announcements are a dumpster fire. I think this is a website bug that Awful is Faithfully Replicating, but there's no reason we need to do that. I'll add it to the list!

shortspecialbus posted:

While my previous post about long pressing an image still is a thing, I just had this scroll to the top in a thread when I am positive my fingers weren't near any edge. I may take this thing to an apple store as it might have some sort of issue. I've only noticed it in Awful, that I can remember, but I don't use other apps that scroll all that often.

Edit: now doing it more frequently and it happened twice in my pinball game where it randomly paused (the pause button is the top of the screen). Definitely hardware, will contact apple. This is not an awful app issue.

Edit 2, on the off chance anyone is interested - I went into draw mode in the notes app, put the iPad Pro in landscape mode, and let it sit a while. I was hoping to get definitive evidence of phantom presses. It worked - There's a small dot where it drew with the phantom presses right on what would be the top edge of the screen in portrait mode. Hopefully Apple will replace it, I think I have applecare on it.

This makes me so happy because I'm getting the same thing on my iPad Pro, but I've been seeing it in every app for awhile so I knew it wasn't Awful and was pretty sure it's hardware. Didn't think to do a notes drawing to show the touches, that's brilliant. (I had considered making a dumb app that just logs touches, but then figured rolling into the Apple Store with a custom app showing problems might not be so convincing.)

It's not really the right thread for it but I'd love to know what happens if you send it in.

Zesty posted:

Adding someone to your ignore list on the app doesnít add them to your ignore list on the browser. Bug or no way around that?

Bug. There is a problem changing the list when you have an admin or mod on there, but the app should tell you when it has a problem. The app just says "successfully added"?

Somehow I had recently set my browser to something awful instead of safari. I wasnít able to view any links clicked with this setup. I wasnít even able to back out to the app. It just took me to a blank page and forced me to close the app.

Most threads seem to open slightly zoomed in so casual scrolling makes them jump all over the place and kills right swipe to go back until I pinch zoom out. Also playing a webm/gifv just now made the page it was on refresh for some reason.

I'm popping in with the opposite reaction about Youtube embeds, ha.

On the forums there is an option to just display links rather than embeds with the video tag, and it'd be cool if the app could respect the user's settings, or failing that, provide its own similar setting regarding this behavior. I poked around but didn't find anything, which is how I ended up here. Thanks

the forums itself now allows you to quote posts from closed threads and in the goldmine etc, could you add this in the app as well?

You can do it in closed forums now, like the goldmine, and also archived posts. There aren't any buttons yet so you have to url edit. I can make the buttons work too but yeah, it is no longer impossible to grab bbcode from archived or goldmined posts.

I think the reason why the page is zoomed in is because something happens when a mp4 or gifv is quoted that extends the quote box beyond the screen.

Any chance we can get an extra page back/forward mapping to cmd-left arrow and cmd-right arrow? Safari has this has a hidden mapping and it's much easier for one handed operation on a keyboard. Safari supports both cmd-[ ] and cmd-arrows for these operations.

Also, if there's future plans for explicit pointer / gesture support, two finger swipes on trackpads for forward/back would be great too.

Thanks.

The zoom thing is weird, I'll take a look at that. Quotes + embeds is a combo I haven't seen much so that theory is mighty plausible.

The refresh was probably a memory thing or something, I'm less sure about my ability to do something about it but it's good to hear about.

It is not, and you shouldn't need to futz with volume. Wonder if we're somehow using the wrong audio category. Can you link me to a post with a problematic embed?

The zoom issue happens in this thread, with a quoted mp4 causing it. There is also a video which starts muted, requiring volume increase/decrease to hear the audio.

Being able to copy to the clipboard would be enough, I think. Maybe even just have the quote go into the clipboard directly and pop a notice to that effect?

Sounds good + good luck! I've also noticed this happens briefly even if you tap a thread from a forums/bookmark view. Hard to see but the bottom tab bar switches to the incorrect sizing during the fraction of the second that the thread view is sliding. And now that I've noticed it once, I can't unsee it!

Looks like this issue has been resolved while swiping out of a thread or swiping back into it! However it's now even worse when tapping a thread to load it afresh, which (o frabjous day!) I've managed to screenshot:
