    With my iPad Pro and either my finger or Apple Pencil, I cannot select text in an existing thread. I used to be able to do this all the time. Has forum software changed?

    I find that sometimes I can, and sometimes I can't. I don't know if that's a function of the forum or my iPhone 5 showing its age.

    That is what is happening to me using my iPad Pro. It’s not old at all. I don’t think it’s our hardware.

    Would almost certainly be an issue with the user device unless the text you're trying to select is part of an image.

    Well, we’ve got two different devices having the problem. One older, one newer. Text is not part of an image.
