    Hi all,

    Scenario/Issue: When using an iPad (2017 model latest iOS) and 76.0.18 CPanel, the standard text editor used to Edit (a file such as .htaccess) displays very blurry text.


    However the user is presented with an option on the toolbar to Use Latest Editor, the file is then reloaded and the text is very crisp.
    However it is no longer possible to highlight multiple rows of text to select, copy, cut etc.

    It is possible to highlight a single line of text by tapping a line number, but only one, unless the user switches back to the traditional editor.

    This has been an issue for several releases of CPanel and incidentally just out of interest but perhaps it uses a a similar library, I've noticed that Amazon's AWS S3 text/code editor that is used to edit policies and CORS configurations etc has the same problem, except with AWS there is no traditional editor to switch back to.

    Hello @The Old Man,

    Can you open a support ticket so we can take a closer look and attempt to reproduce this behavior? You can post the ticket number here and we'll link this thread to it.

    Thank you.
