Indent Buttons

Hi, a couple of days ago, indenting and outdenting notes almost regularly makes ThinkBook crash. I am using a BT keyboard, sometimes and I am using Swipe Selection from Cydia. However, the problem is still there not using the keyboard and uninstalling Swipe Selection.

    Does this happen EVERYWHERE in your notebooks or just in a particular place?

    It happens everywhere. I also found the extra buttons on top of the keyboard do not disappear with the keyboard, unless I scroll. After that, I sometimes can indent bz gesture. Using the buttons always makes the app crash.

    I'm experiencing this as well. Also a jailbroken iPad 3.

    I don't think this happens on a non-jailbroken device and I don't really know what jail breaking does to one, it could have to do with the changes made to customize the devices. Has anyone seen this on standard iPad?

    The problem seems to be with the "Extended Support" option in a plugin
    called ActionMenu, which allows the text editing popup menu to be
    customized with things like clipboard history, custom search engines,
    etc. I've contacted the dev, Ryan Petrich, to let him know.

    Thanx Jesse Baer, you are right. Uninstalling the extended action menu resolved the issue! Swipe selection works fine. I am really glad to return to thinkbook, now. Evernote did not work half as good for me...

    Thanks very much, Jesse. I am glad to resolve that frustrating problem.

    I just wanted to provide clarification to NSO's last comment in case someone else hits this. As Jesse stated, the conflict is specifically with the "Extended Support" option of Action Menu. This is a paid add-on to the base, free Action Menu extension.

    Therefore, you do not need to go as far as uninstalling Action Menu (or even the Extended Support add-on) in order to avoid the conflict while using Think Book. Rather, disable the "Extended Support" option in Settings->General->Action Menu prior to using Think Book. When not in Think Book, you can enable it again.
