Persistant Caps Lock on iPad


I use the latest Joplin app version 10.0.22 on an iPad Air 2 running IOS 11.3.1
When keyboard auto-capitalization is on and I edit a note I can type only in capital letters. When I then press the Caps Lock key I can type only a single letter in lower case and then the keyboard switches back to permanent Caps mode again.
I have this problem only in Joplin.
Did anybody experience the same?


It must be the latest version of Joplin (version 10.0.22). My iPad (iOS 11.3.1) didn’t had that issue with the previous version but once I updated Joplin the persistent-capital-letters behavior started. Non-Apple-Software keyboards are immune to this weird behavior, though. I am helpless as you so I am using a Dvorak Keyboard downloaded from the AppStore as a temporary fix.


I experienced the same thing yesterday, although it also happened with the Google keyboard. After a while I’ve noticed that my note had two empty lines at the bottom. When I removed those empty lines all was good again.


That seems to be a known bug in React Native - https://github.com/facebook/react-native/issues/19389
