Unable to focus on empty editor on mobile

See original GitHub issue

Do you want to request a feature or report a bug?


What’s the current behavior?

On mobile/touch devices, a tap on an empty Editor does not focus the editor. If the editor already has text, it’s fine.

In the GIF, there are multiple clicks/touches, but no focus. Here is the fiddle shown.

What’s the expected behavior?

A tap on an empty Editor should focus for editing.

I can no longer reproduce the crash, which is great. Things generally work fine in empty editors that have the placeholder. But sometimes you get into this weird state where there is no placeholder (and there should be), and in those situations you can’t type.

I believe that this may be fixed by, which has changed a lot of the logic in Slate and slate-react especially. I’m going to close this out, but as always, feel free to open a new issue if it persists for you. Thanks for understanding.
