This is a followup to WebDirect 18 bugs: fixed in 19?
One bug that seems to still exist in FMS 20 WebDirect:
- on an iPad in Safari
- if your WebDirect layout is taller than the screen
- scrolling is buggy
The "solution" as described here is to use Safari to "Request Mobile Website" at which point the page works much better.
This was not a great solution in 2019, and 4+ years later it's pretty amazing this bug still exists.
Anyone found a way to deal with this? I'm thinking...
- different layouts for different screen sizes
Please always report your bugs to Clairs - thanks for sharing @xochi.
Yes, the link I provided is to a bug report submitted in 2019, so clearly Claris is (was?) aware of the issue. It may be worth re-reporting to remind them?
If you reported it then (2019), report it again for the current version if applicable. Sadly you have to report over and over again as far as I experienced it just to increase the likelihood to get notices first and if ever fixed ...
My solution is to standardise layouts around the minimum screen size and then stretch-to-fit.
It doesn't always work. Some layouts have too much info and its much easier for the user to scroll up/down than it is to split the data across tabs, panels, or layouts.
