It's a wrap

I have noticed a couple of times recently that word wrap is not active on PP. I am on an IPad. Can this be fixed?

Not sure I understand. When I use Safari or Firefox on my iPad the words wrap fine.

What browser are you using, and what are you trying to do? When you click Public Press, without doing anything else, are you saying it is not wrapping text that is already there? Or is it on input when you are trying to input something?

More info would be useful :)

When I type in a long load of text, it disappears off the right hand side of the screen. I don't know about operating system. It's an Ipad. It's got Ipad system.

Is it Safari you are using?

As I say, Safari works fine for me inputting a lot of text. It wraps fine. I seem to remmber there is some setting somewhere in Safari that says whether you want wrap or not but I need to check it out.

It is only happening in one game. 154006. And yes it is safari.

Well, since it works OK with my iPad, I can't reproduce it. I can't find any setting, I think I must have imagined that. The only thing I could find is that a bug emerged in iOS Safari (the one used on iPads) in V11 I think which caused autowrap to fail on text input.

So I would suggest the following:
- Best in my view would be to put up another browser (eg FF, Chrome or something). Safari is pretty dodgy, particularly on phones although less so on iPads
- Try upgrading your Safari to the latest level. That might fix it,
- Although a long shot, you could try refreshing your Safari browser cache. Can't see why it would help, but it is the equivalent of turning it off and on and might just clear something that has got corrupted

Sorry not to be more help. If I can't make it fail myself then it becomes very hard to sort out :(

It only does it in one game. Logically, it is not my Ipad.

Can you check for control characters in the text? There are some images in the pp.

OK, I see. It is that large image. I don't know how someone managed to post that because it should have been shrunk. Somehow it has not been shrunk, and that has screwed everything up. I could delete it but that doesn't seem fair. I will give it some thought and try to work out how it was posted in the first place.

It's doing it again. Game 160903. I think it's because someone ( :mrgreen: ) typed in a really long word.
