Long notes are not visible in Android edit mode

Hi,

in Joplin 1.0.323 on Android I cannot edit long notes.
The content of notes with more than 32 lines is not visible in the editor.

It might just be the text color, which changes to the background color if the note is too long.
I can still select words and type. But characters are just invisible. I tried all themes with the same result.

Maybe someone can confirm that?

cheers

Did you put your whole note in title? If yes, then that error is there and I just made a PR that fix that. But if you paste your long note in body, then it’s working perfectly fine, I just tested it. I can easily edit and see my changes. Can you please give a screenshot?

nope, it’s not in the title.

I can’t reproduce it, everything seems to work on my phone ( one plus 6 ), can you try on any other phone, it might be the font issue, may be your phone doesn’t have the fonts it requires. We can fix that issue, please confirm it. And also can you please show what note has this problem?

Yes, it seems to be a font issue…
Maybe I can try it on another phone tomorrow.
Which fonts do I need? Maybe I can install them somehow?
But it’s strange that the font changes when adding a line.
Here is a test note. This works but if I add another line it disappears:

Yeah it worked for me, try it tomorrow in another phone, if there it worked that means the problem is with the font, then we can easily fix this by providing the font in the app itself.

I tried on another android and it worked there. On the Linux desktop there is also no problem. It seems that only my device is affected :frowning:

For the moment I can live with that but it would be nice to have that fixed at some point.

I wonder why something is changing when using more than 32 lines. That might not be intended.

Even I am note sure about that. But we can surely find a fix for that.

I updated to the new version 1.0.324 today and the issue is gone!

Thank you so much for the help :slight_smile:

Hello,
I’m on Joplin 1.0.325 Android and I can confirm the exactly behaviour as in the entry post, but only on phone Samsung S7, on Tablet 1.0.325 and Windows 1.0.197 it works well. I’ve not used 1.0.324 in the meantime.
Seems it is not fixed for all devices?

It seems the bug is back with version 1.0.327.
I did not test explicitly on version 1.0.325 so I don’t know when the bug was reintroduced.

(I’ll remove the Solution checkbox on my previous post)

I also have this issue on Samsung Galaxy Tab A (sm-t580) using the latest version 1.0.327

Same bug - Asus ZE552KL. 2020-04-19T21:00:00Z
Joplin 1.0.327
Database v.28

With long notes - as soon I enter editing mode only white (empty) screen is shown…

I’ve made some testing, it works until the text amounts reaches a certain length. Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a new note on Android
  2. Enter editing mode
  3. Enter random text (no formatting at all) - few letter per lines
  4. Until line 25 everything is OK (visible)
  5. Enter to line 26 - exactly on the 26th line the whole text disappears.

As soon as you hit delete button to remove text and come back to the 25th line, the whole text appears again.

It should be fixed in 1.0.328

Thank you for the quick reply! Looking forward!

Just found an issue on GitHub, referencing to that) just in case.

If you have a test device you can go ahead and try: https://github.com/laurent22/joplin-android/releases/tag/android-v1.0.328

Works now for me after update to 1.0 329. :+1:

Great news. Will the same fix apply to iOS as well?
