iOS Display Glitch


#1

I’m having problems with displaying tables in grid view on iOS devices. The problem is that the primary field will not display correctly or at all. See attached screenshot.

When a record with a seemingly empty primary field is expanded, the contents of the primary field show correctly (only in expanded view though). I can see no logical patterns as the why some fields are displayed correctly and others are not. It seems completely random. The primary field from the screenshot is a simple text field.

This behaviour is consistent with different tables in different bases and on different tested devices (iPhone & iPad).

I hope this is not a duplicate of a known bug, but I couldn’t find a related topic using search.

UPDATE: I do have a suspicion. I think it has to do with data that was copy&pasted into the table. As soon as I change just a little something within the primary field (like adding a space at the end and deleting it again) in the browser or desktop app the record instantly becomes displayed correctly in the iOS app. I’m not 100% sure but I believe that all the records that show the glitch were actually really pasted from excel. Still believe this is a bug that needs to be sorted out. Manually going through 100s or 1000s of records is just not an option.
