Hello Devs.

According to the Nextcloud Devs in https://github.com/nextcloud/android/issues/3492 I should take this bug to you cool guys.

I'm currently running LOOLWSD 4.0.0 (git hash: bdf2f61) / Collabora Office 6.0-23 (git hash: 6410049). The Backspace Key does not work when trying to edit a .odt in the Nextcloud Android Client.

Any ideas?

thanks and cheers

Same issue here, when editing via nextcloud android app (android).
Editing in Nextcloud in browser session (firefox on laptop) reponds to backspace.
LOOLWSD 4.0.0 (git hash: b956fd1)
Collabora Office 6.0-23 (git hash: 6410049)

Strangely I couldn't repro this with a Samsung tablet, backspace works fine there. Those who can reproduce this, it might be worth to check in Chrome as well, and confirming whether the same happens there.

Happens on all browsers on my lg g6 android pie. Foss Browser, Chrome, Firefox.

Ok, managed to confirm with AOSP keyboard in Collabora Online 4.0.5.

And it's not related to the Android app, happens from the browser as well.
As a workaround, turn off Text correction / Show correction suggestions.

Hi Aron, I tried your suggested workaround.
However with AOSP keyboard, on lineageos it does't change anything for me, even with all text correction options turned off.

I installed anysoft keyboard from f-droid, and with that keyboard active with default settings, backspace works.

I can confirm that disabling all text correction/suggestion options in AOSP keyboard doesn't fix the problem for me.

This is a Nexus 5X running LineageOS 15.1-20191101-microG (aka Android 8.1) Though I reproduced this as well on a OnePlus X (Android 7.1) and a Nexus 6P (Android 8.1) all running Lineage and AOSP keyboard.

Is this a bug in the keyboard or in Collbora?
