I am having an odd problem, and have not found a post that is similar. My daughter is using Pages on her iPad 2 (IOS 6) to do schoolwork. She has just had a second episode of working on a fairly long document of several paragraphs, and when hitting the backspace/delete key on the virtual keyboard intending to delete a single letter, the entire contents of the Pages document are erased. UNDO/REDO does not help. Fortunately, I was present both times and saw the work she was doing prior to the deletion, so am certain what she is reporting is accurate. It does NOT happen every time.
Her school requires the work be submitted from Pages on her iPad, or I would have her do it elsewhere.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Having read the only posts that seem similar, referring to occasional whole line deletions rather than single characters, I am having her reset the iPad now.
