Android: Weird typing bugs when adding markup (here: quote)

I noticed some weird jumping / modifying / deleting behavior when adding markup to existing text on android.


  • Platform: Android
  • Platform version: 10
  • App Version: 4.0.4


  1. Create a new note with some text. I’m gonna use “Hello World how are you?”
  2. Move the cursor to the beginning and type “>” (this changes the formatting to quote)
  3. Type Space

Expected text resulting from this:

> Hello World how are you?

Text I actually get:

>Hello d how are you?

The cursor is positioned at the end.

Trying to insert text between “Hello” and “World” makes the cursor jump to after “World”


This issue might be related: Android typing impossible to use

I also noticed a related behavior when trying to do the following, but I couldn’t reproduce:

  1. Write some text.
  2. Insert “**” at the end (!) of the text.
  3. Insert “**” at the beginning to make the text bold.

Hi Steffen,

Thank you for reporting it.
The editor for Android is known as unstable.
It is planned to be rebuilt in the current roadmap.
I also described why it happens in the article:
