Summary

When typing/editing text in a large text field, the screen jerks continuously vertically

Product

FileMaker Go

Version

1.2.3

Operating system version

ios5

Description of the issue

I have a large text field in a panel of a tab control on a layout. I use it for freeform notations. In Filemaker Go, when I tap in the field to edit the text, the keyboard appears and about half the time the entire layout jerks continuously up and down about the height of 3-4 lines of text. It seems to scroll downward and then jerk up in an endless loop.

Steps to reproduce the problem

I'm not sure why it does this sometimes and not others. As I mentioned above, it seems to happen about 1/2 the time. I tried creating a layout with just a large text field and it has other problems which I'll report in another Issue Report.

Expected result

I expect the insertion point to be placed where I tap my finger and for the layout to NOT move on the screen.

Actual result

See Description of issue.
