When trying to add a duplicate target to a closed question on my iPhone, I'd like to paste a URL in the box where you're supposed to 'search, or enter a question link or numeric id'. However, the beginning of this box is hidden from view, and scrolling to the left doesn't work, as the dialog is clipped:

Long pressing the part of the box, to bring up the context menu with the Paste option doesn't work. I have a workaroud: type a long text like "testtesttesttesttesttest" and eventually it will become visible, so that you can Select All and then Paste, but it's rather cumbersome. It takes so long that a GIF of the screencast is more than 3x the maximum size for embedding via imgur, so you'll have to settle for this YouTube link instead.

  • Not a fix, but I find that if I'm not in desktop mode when on that page, the box is much more usable: i.stack.imgur.com/WF4at.jpg – muru Nov 17 '18 at 4:37
  • While using 50% zoom and landscape mode I am able to see the entire box. But this is still a pain to do. – Laurel Oct 21 '20 at 22:50
