    Hello all! /

    I'm having a weird issue and I want to know if anyone else is experiencing the same thing.

    Safari Handoff works perfectly for me. If I'm on a website on my iPad or iPhone, it'll transfer to my MacBook and vice versa. However, whenever I'm writing a message and I want to switch to another device, it doesn't transfer the text I've already typed. Sometimes, it'll just open up the conversation thread I was in, other times it'll simply open up the messages app.

    This happens no matter which device I switch from/to. Bluetooth on, Wifi on and on same network, Handoff enabled, Yosemite and 8.1 on all devices.

    Any ideas? Anyone else experiencing the same thing?

    Fun fact: That's super lame.

    Thanks for that video.

    Sadly that is the current design. Perhaps in the future you'll be able to do what you're trying to do.
