Text display problem if Ipad is in display scaling mode on M1 Ipad pro

Recommended Posts

Dear developers,

I have noticed this problem, which makes it almost impossible to create text containing documents:

the new IpadOS makes it possible to set the ipad in scaled display mode, thus making the machine to have more real estate on screen. Unfortunatelly when I turn it on, hoping to have more space, I experience that Publisher v2.02 can not render text on screen properly.

I do not know if it is a particular problem with Publisher, or a systemwide issue. If it is a system problem please notify Apple about it, and I suggest you guys to have a pupup implemented in Publisher informing the user about this systemwide problem, before the user starts wondering.

Thank you

It’s a known problem on iPadOS16, simply turn off that display setting until it is fixed.
