    Hope someone here can help, it kinda weird but when l reply to a post in a forum, l click on the button on the
    + button so it gets bigger.
    As l am typing it keeps going back to the small slot at the
    bottom. If the iPad is flat it does happen. Also when I have it on my stand. Only when it's tilted and the back is about
    1and half inches higher than the front.
    Using iOS 10.0.2 but it was happening before.
    Resetting etc. Cures it for a while.
    Thanks in advance

    I don't know what + button you are talking about. Could you please add more details.

    As for the tilting thing, make sure you are not accidentally pressuring the volume control buttons that are on the top (home button to the right) edge. I have not idea why this would cause a difference in text or zoom size, but it's the most likely thing to be affected by having your iPad at an angle instead of flat or in a well designed stand.

    The + plus button l refer to is the one next to were you would write your request or reply.
    And you wish to add a photo or screenshot.
    I am not coming into contact with any volume buttons, just the normal keyboard.

    Ok. Now I understand.

    But, I don't think I can be of much help. I rarely use TapaTalk on the iPad, much prefering to use the website in Safari instead. I do use it on the iPhone, but rarely reply there. Instead, if I'm reading on the iPhone I'll make a note of the threads I want to get back to, and reply on the iPad later.

    Since it's the TapaTalk app, and not Safari or iOS in general causing the problem you shouldn't have to do a reset when it starts to misbehave. Instead double tap on the home button, then swipe up on the TapaTalk app to remove it from the app list.

    This will force the TapaTalk app to restart the next time you open it.

    If that works to clear the problem (howeve temporary) the people to talk to would be TapaTalk's developers. I can't find a app user's support contact (the website caters to forum owners), but they do have a discussion form wiht a section for app users. Not surprisingly it's available in the TapaTalk app.

    If the problem persists despite clearing the app, maybe it is an iOS problem. Not sure what to do about that except hope for an update that fixes. Though you could mention it on the TapaTalk forum anyway in the hopes that they will either work around it, or at least file a bug report with Apple to fix it. (You must be a developer or in the public beta program to send bug reports to Apple (called a Radar).

    Ok thanks
    Your comments about the case makes me wonder and the fact that it doesn't do it when l reply using my iPhone in the same way, i.e. Tilted in my hand

    Hi thanks for your suggestion about the case, l noticed that it had what should l say a bigger fold than others at the top.
    And when it was folded it would bend a little, if l held it tight in place my problem went away.
    Sorry hard to explain so l took a few pics.

    No problem. Glad to be of help, even if it was mostly accidental. :)

    A new case is on order, looks more stable.
    And it swivels in the middle, which should help with apps like Sky news etc. Which read from left to right, if you know what l mean.

    Hi quick update since the new case arrived, l have had no further problems the whole thing is more stable.
    Funny though Sky News updated their app and turned it on its side, making it much easier to view. Landscape view l mean.
    Once again thanks.
