Unable to write outside the quote box

I've noticed that when I'm on the phone, if I quote something then edit it. I can't start a new sentence outside of the quote box.

    You have to leave some space before quoting 😊. Like press the "return" button then click back up and then press quote so you have space below that. If makes sense?
    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley

    I think this happens with me too. If I quote something to respond to it, then press backspace, I'm stuck typing inside the quote box despite trying to click back outside of it.

    When that happens, I have to get rid of the quote box and start again, being careful to leave typing space outside. I know it's a pain haha.

    Or are you describing something different? :smile:

    Unfortunately, this isn't something Vanilla can change but if you follow the tips Shaunie and Kathleen have given, this should help!
