formatting ribbon?

Doug Mar 20, 2017 06:04PM PDT

Can I please ask how to display the formatting ribbon when it's not on the iPad? When I'm writing a note, sometimes the ribbon appears at the bottom of the screen and sometimes it doesn't. Is there a setting so that it is always available? If not, how can I ensure that it's displayed? Thanks.

Hi Doug,

Thanks for reaching out!

Did I get it right that you're talking about the toolbar at the top of iPad keyboard?
This one: https://www.dropbox.com/s/psj98drjwjeuxka/File%2021-03-2017%2C%2011%2050%2027.png?dl=0

Usually it's always available in editing / typing mode.
Do you have it missing sometimes when typing?
Or does it happen when you edit already entered text?

Hi Alena,

The ribbon appears at the bottom of the screen when the iPad is attached to a combination iPad cover/keyboard (when editing a block of text). However, sometimes it appears and sometimes it doesn't. I wonder if there is a way to force it to appear in case it's not there. Thanks.

Doug,

Thank you for your reply!

I now got what the situation is about.
We will start the investigation ticket and start testing the app's behaviour when external keyboard is used.

I will write to you once there are any news.
Please write to me if there are any other questions on the app!
