DTTG text annotation does not give option to move cursor within text annotation nor select text within annotation


I’m using DTTG to review and annotate PDFs. With the text annotation tool, I can create a text box and type text into it (see image below). However, I can’t find a way to edit this text without deleting everything that comes after the text I want to edit. For example, using the image below, if I wanted to add text before the word “This”, I would have to delete everything in the text box. I cannot move the cursor within the text, as you can in general across iOS and iPadOS. I also am unable to selected multiple words (see second image below).

Am I simply missing something here? (It wouldn’t be the first time. :joy:) Or is this functionality missing in DTTG?

Thank you!!


iOS/iPadOS general feature:

I’m not seeing any issue here.

  1. Update to DEVONthink To Go 3.7.8, just released today.
  2. Reboot the device, if the behavior persists.

Updating did the trick! Thank you for taking the time to help me! :blush:

No problem :slight_smile:
