Fill-in on iPad/HTML5 sometimes deletes last character
I have now had three different people observe if you are doing a fill-in-the-blank question in Safari on iPad in HTML5 output, sometimes when you press return on the iPad virtual keyboard it will delete the last character of the user's text entry before submitting the question. I have seen this myself and now customers have seen it also.
It does not seem to be easily reproducible, e.g. I can't make a short demo that shows the problem reliably. However when you do a certain publish and the problem occurs on a certain page, it can be persistent. It does not happen on a desktop browser, and you can avoid it if you dismiss the virtual keyboard and then press the Submit button (a custom one in my case). However most users will use the Enter key to submit, and that's when the last character of the entry disappears. (e.g. if the user types "Apple", what gets submitted is "Appl".
Has anyone else seen this?
