Unable to click on links/footnotes on iPad with keyboard

Testing version:

What were you doing:
Trying to click on footnotes or links or start a gif

What feature did you use:
What happened:
With keyboard attached to iPad panda stays in edit mode, so clicking on links just reveals their markdown. E.g. you can not move to a footnote.
Disconnecting the keyboard solves problem and links, footnotes and gifs work as expected.
You should be able to use this with a keyboard attached.

What did you expect to happen:
Be able to click on links etc. with keyboard attached.

I consider that as a feature rather than a bug. The attached key in iOS invokes the edit mode whereas a screen withot keys is the read mode.That two modes affect also other elements, f.e. links: in read mode the link is opened and in edit mode (key attached) you will be able to edit the link. Actually an elegant solution

The problem though is that once in edit mode with a keyboard attached it doesn’t seem that you can exit edit mode without closing the document or disconnecting the keyboard… I don’t think that is particularly elegant.
All the added features are great though, looking forward to image resizing appearing in Bear

Hello and thanks for reporting this. We do understand is not practical to get out/in the document to leave the edit mode when an external keyboard is attached to an iPad. We are considering adding a button to the iPadOS floating suggestion panel to go back into reading mode.

Will that button also come to Mac version?

No, but I do wonder why you might require a simular button on Mac.

I do not but I was just curious :wink:
