I would like to create and change text and calc files on my iPad mini by means of collabora office.
Current OS is iPadOS 15.8
Collabora Office Version is 23.05.5.2
I start with empty file (blank sheet in text resp. calc). After activating the editing by clicking on the pencil sign on the bottom the menu appears as well as the virtual keyboard of the iPad. But no touch of the virtual keyboard of the iPad shows reaction.
A text, which was written outside, can be inserted. But this text cannot be altered by the format menu.
Saving works, i.e. the text will be saved.
Is there a basic setting needed?
Any general restriction on iPads?
thank you for your response.
There is no hardware connected nor voice over activated.
May be it’s an individual issue with the device, which cannot be changed by the settings.
I will follow up and post new ideas or solution.
I’m been having the same issue for some weeks now, using iPadOS 14.6 and Collabora Office version 23.05.5. After an update, I can’t directly type any character anymore neither using my Bluetooth keyboard nor the virtual keyboard.
I am still able to copy/paste text from elsewhere, select text and interact with it (editing font types and size, change colours, etc.). Keyboard shortcuts such as Ctrl+Z still seem to work, too. It’s just not possible to type anything on the document itself. (Typing in the searching bar still works.)
this seems to be the root of the problem: the old iOS version. Unfortunately I have an iPad 2nd (!) gen. Apple does not support anymore, thus I am stuck with iOS 15.8.
The question is: Is there an (older) Collabora Version still available, which works on iOS 15.8.?
If so - how can I get this? Would it make sense to install it?
Thanks to all contributors
Bingo - now it works! I did not do anything in this issue thee last weeks. Now I have opened by chance the app and could edit the text and the calculation file. Obviously the app was updated in the background. Thank you very much to all who have managed this.
