Bug: writing and erasing text on Linux

Bug report

When writing some text in a new note, text are displayed first and If I try to delete it, those characters are still there but the cursor is back at the beginning o the line. Cannot write at all (see below for details).


  • Platform: Linux (Gentoo)
  • Platform version: Gentoo (unstable kernel 6.1.9)
  • App Version: 5.5.3

How to reproduce

Write some text like: hello.
Displayed text is: hello.
Trying to delete it with delete key: hello (cursor at the “h” position)
Trying to write different text : cannot write and text disappeared but “Just start typing” shows up.

In the past, I had the same issue on the Android app.
I now have iPhone 14 Pro Max as main cellphone but no bug at all.

Any help would be appreciated.

That sounds really strange, but it’s a little bit hard to visualize. Would it be possible for you to produce a gif/video reproducing the issue?

What’s you install method on Gentoo? I’ve personally had some issues with snap on Manjaro, though that really shouldn’t produce this kind of issue.

Yeah, that sounds weird. Maybe it’s an environment-dependent issue. Could you post a reproduction video/gif and answer the questions that Magnus asked?

Hello @Magnus and @craftzdog

I wanted to recording this weird state but this issue did not occurred since 1 week so I think it was a local issue.

Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your help!


No problem. Thanks for the report!
