One other thing I’ve noticed JSYK—after a thread gets kind of long, my screen will freeze if someone else is also adding a comment while I’m composing. I have to get out of my comment screen and then come back in again to get the cursor to work right again. It has happened often enough that I just do that automatically whenever the cursor freezes now.
Compared to the bugginess we had to deal with pre-Cake app, the user experience (UX) is 100 times better. The format editor is more responsive now and I have greater cursor control when highlighting text.
Freezing of the app when you’re crafting a response, however, is annoying and an obvious source of friction for a new user who’s creating their first response.
It’s automatic now for me, when my response freezes up, to hit the pink arrow at the top of the screen, which brings me back to my timeline.
Then I have to click on the conversation to open it up again—sometimes I have to first scroll through the timeline to find it.
Then I have to scroll through the conversation thread to the post I was responding to.
Then I have to click reply and my response reappears.
Sometimes it will freeze up a second time before I’m finished and I will have to repeat this.
Thanks for bringing this up @lidja . I thought I was the only one who had this happen.
