When text is being deleted from the comment box, the page will scroll to the top of the page.

When typing, it will jump back down to the comment box.

Anything on this? It happens to me every time and is annoying as fck. And if you close the app or get a text during your writing it also deletes all that you have already written.

Can you list the steps that you perform so that I can attempt to reproduce this behavior?

I am using  version 4.15 (build 121) of the Mountain Project app on my Galaxy S7 Edge phone running Android 8.0.0.

Just about anything that causes the screen to refresh erases anything I have entered but not submitted.  In particular rotating the phone with screen rotation enabled.

It's bad enough that I often go to a computer to where anything of any length.

type "the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog"

start deleting text one letter at a time and it should do it. I literally just did.

also hitting the space or enter button will do it.

climber pat: I was able to reproduce the erasing of my text when I followed your instructions when posting a reply to an existing forum post.

Sean Hayes: I was not able to reproduce a problem when I followed your instructions when posting a reply to an existing forum post. I am assuming that this is what you meant by "comment box"...

This behavior also occurs on my Android, but not in the app.  Just using Chrome browser when pressing backspace to delete a portion of a new comment.

Hey!  I'm the new android developer.  Thanks for all the great feedback, it really helps.  I know how to fix the problem where your message disappears after rotating or switching apps or locking.  I'll try to get that into the next release.

I'm having trouble reproducing the issue where deleting text makes the page scroll up.  Sean, Dan, Floyd, which phone and android version are you using?  Do you have any idea which keyboard you're using?  Stock android, samsung, gboard?

May or may not be relative but it's an unlocked version.

It has done that since the beginning for me. Across All updates, l Even tried deleting and reloading the app.
Does it for the app as well as the browser on my phone.

Hi Jason,

Glad you're trying to work on it.  Im using a Galaxy S9+ running Android 8.0.0. - Also using the default Keyboard

Thanks for responding, that helped me reproduce it.  The Samsung and LG keyboards have some unusual behavior.  We should be able to fix it in the next couple weeks.

Deleting the text scrolls me to the top as well. Galaxy S7 Edge. I'll update with keyboard and version.

Edit: Android 8.0.0, Samsung Experience 9.0, Samsung Keyboard.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
