In line edit text field is deleting entered text randomly

For the last few days I’ve noticed some issues with words or parts of sentences I’ve typed in inline edit fields disappearing, open the curser will jump to a different location as well. Today a large block of text was deleted without action from me. It happened in this record. The text was entered yesterday arond 4:30 and when I opened the record on a different computer today noticed it was missing. Fortunately airtable logged it:

Thanks for mentioning @onlymatt - in truth, the inline editing is prone to this sort of behaviour, and as it stands we’re thinking of how to solve it, but no timeline in mind.

We usually suggest using action buttons instead and disabling inline editing if you’re editing A LOT of text

@darragh I certainly appreciate the candor. Hopefully a solution isn’t far off.
