Hi, I had a conversation on Twitter with an expert (and well followed!) user of iPads, Fraser Speirs, re Bear App vs Evernote.


I haven't experienced the issue he has on iOS, do you know about the issue of cursor moving left of bullet point, and if so has it been dealt with and fixed? (I'd like to reply to him)

    I'm not sure what the issue might be here.
    Of course you can move your cursor to the left of a bullet, otherwise cut/copy would never be able to include the bullet in the cut/copied text.

    we understand the suggestion, but in a markdown perspective the bullet is a character and have to be copied and edited like other characters. We'll think about possible solutions.
