  1. Update 後超好用

    我在 milestone 上按實體kb 的 enter 後, candidates bar 不會自動 clear

    解決方法係打 enter 前先按一下 space, thx

  2. Thank you for your report. Will fix it on the coming release. Actually, you can just continue to type and ignore the suggestions on the candidates bar. No extra space required.

  3. Appreciate it that you released an update for the bug, but it wasn't fixed... pressing the kb enter will not clear the candidate bar... and without clearing it, when I type something else, the cursor would be pulled back to the previous line... hope you can find a Milestone to test it out.

    moreover I found another new bug with the candidate bar...

    For pages that are long, the candidate bar will pull the page to scroll to the end, even if I'm writing somewhere on the top of the page, I can scroll back to the top again, but when I type again, the candidate bar will pull it again...

  4. Would you like to provide more info of the problems so that i would not misinterpreted again? What app is using with the keyboard and which screen or text view cause the problem? Thx.
