Writer field cursor jump

Situation: Editing a writer field in the panel drawer which contains text (image caption field).

Action: When I place the cursor in front of the first character (or any position) and start typing the cursor jumps to the end of the text.



name: field.blocks.image.name
icon: image
preview: image
    label: field.blocks.image.name
    type: files
    multiple: false
    width: 1/2
    layout: cards
    size: small
      back: black
      template: image
    label: Caption
    type: writer
    icon: text
    width: 1/2
   … etc

It seems that setting inline: true instead of the default false prevents this behaviour.
Also, without inline: true any text after a hard return isn’t displayed at the front-end.

I can reproduce this issue and seems to be a bug.

Has this been fixed?

Dunno, but reporting of errors is preferred on Github instead of this forum …

I was just going to write a question for this. In 3.9.2 it is still an annoying problem.
I will look at github to see if it’s there.


This very annoying bug is still in 3.9.4 …
