Let's say I want to select some text in the app:

So far it's all good, but when I try refining my selection with the little knobs1,

  • when moving them left or right, instead of the selection changing, the entire questions/answers panel is slid
  • when moving up or down, it scrolls

Could this be unborkified? I'm using a Galaxy S4 on Android 4.3.

1: I've been wanting to use this word in a question for a while! Now I need to find a way to use "door"

Isn't that a function of the phone OS, and not the app? – Robert Harvey Mar 22 '14 at 0:09
@RobertHarvey Perhaps, but not being able to select text on an extremely commonly used phone (Galaxy S4, editing it in) sounds like a problem to me. – Doorknob Mar 22 '14 at 0:10
I think it is more of a needing to be careful of how you (you as a general you, not you specifically) are pulling the handles, I can reproduce this on a Nexus 7 tablet. But it also happens nearly anything I try select text on Android. – Howli Mar 22 '14 at 1:07
@Howlin Really? This seems to be the only app for which I have this problem. In any case, no matter how hard or slowly I try, the question/answer pane refuses to stay still. – Doorknob Mar 22 '14 at 2:44
