Since this new beta when typing the text is doubled.  For example, if I type 3 I get 33

Do you mean typing in a text box or some dialog field?

Please be specific as to when/how this occurs

If correct they were probably mine. I apologise for any mistakes made by my AI - I'm sure it will improve with time.

Typing numbers in text box doubles (ie. 3=33, 8=88, etc.) when using Magic Keyboard on iPad.  Software keyboard does not behave this way.  Additionally, magic keyboard sometimes becomes unresponsive after a while in Publisher beta (1713).  I’m also experiencing print scaling issues (it shrinks when printing to about quarter of the actual size it should be on both Beta and release version.  this can be overcome on macOS version via printer options, but they (those specific options) are not available on iPad.

I can confirm that in all three apps on iPadOS 16.3.1.


  1. Digits also double in Art Text.
  2. In Publisher (only), I cannot type letters in Art Text with the keyboard.

Edit 2:

  1. Now, in another new document in Publisher (only), digits are not doubling in Frame Text. And I cannot type letters in Frame Text. And digits are no longer doubling in Art Text.

Don't get this on windows 1714
Perhaps add to your post it is mac related.
1713 is latest beta on mac, 1714 is latest on windows.

Sorry I should have stated that I’m using the iPad version.

The issue "Numbers are inserted twice when using a magic keyboard" (REF: AFB-7453) has been fixed by the developers in internal build "".
This fix should soon be available as a customer beta and is planned for inclusion in the next customer release.
Customer beta builds are announced here and you can participate by following these instructions.
If you still experience this problem once you are using that build version (or later) please reply to this thread including @Serif Info Bot to notify us.
