Couldn't paste text or delete nick from post

Recommended Posts

I didn't know where to post this issue as it's not about the Affinity software itself, so apologies if it's in the wrong place.

Earlier today, once I'd added someone's nick to the start of a new post - using the 'at' symbol - I found that I couldn't paste text into the post or delete the nick. I had to submit the post and then add another after it: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/72823-i-would-like-to-know-where-can-i-get-a-newsprint-style-filter/&tab=comments#comment-382498
Could someone have a look and see if it was just me doing something wrong please?

@GarryP: For what it’s worth, I can paste text after a forum nick and I can delete the nick and/or the text.

Hmm... must be something I'm doing wrong then.
Just out of interest, how do you complete the nick? I've been clicking on the name in the drop-down. Is this the correct thing to do?

Not necessarily, Garry! It might be something your browser is doing wrong. ;)

That’s the only way I know. :)

Ah, I think I've figured out what I'm doing.

Workflow:

* Enter At symbol;
* Enter nick;
* Press desired nick on the drop-down;
* Press tab.

Every time I do this I cannot do anything else with the post.

Can you reproduce this? If not, I'll have to try a different browser (Firefox Quantum at the moment).

@GarryP I can confirm that this issue is replicable using your workflow provided on Chrome also, so it appears to be an issue with our Forums. I'll inform Invision who power the forums for us, thanks for the report! :)
