    I was thinking this would have been discussed already, maybe I failed the search. Anyway, when in this forum, if I reply to a long post with my iPad, I can't get the cursor to the bottom of the reply box to type. Am I missing something, or is this a problem with typing on the iPad?

    Did you try the two finger scrolling maneuver?

    It's the same problem as with iPhone. I've just given up on replying to long posts or I post above the quote.

    You have to scroll with two fingers inside the text box you are editing. Scrolling anywhere else moves the whole page.

    You gotta give more info or ppl don't know where to use the two fingers...

    To elaborate, using two fingers inside the box will scroll only the text inside of it.

    Edit: beaten to the punch. :)

    This made perfect sense to me, I just didn't know about it. Thanks for the quick answer.

    And thanks for everyone else for helping out so fast.

    I learn something new every day.
