Title edits don't have a random-access cursor

gfarnum says:

If you want to edit the title, you can either clear the title or delete the character at the end of the title (backspace), but you can't move the cursor to any place within the text field. Kinda sucks if you want to correct a typo.
This may be a problem elsewhere but I've only had the app for about a day and haven't checked.

Yes, this is possibly my _only_ crib.
Please make this happen!

P.S. The iPhone app is simply awesome. Just exactly what I was looking for.

"Happy" to see I'm not the only one who couldn't do random-access edits. Same issue for other one-line text fields (e.g. URL, custom tag); however, it works fine in the Notes.

I had the idea that it worked *very* occasionally, but I'll try to find a pattern if that occurs again and post an update.

Didn't notice another thread (already auto-closed) about this subject: http://www.rememberthemilk.com/forums/iphone/5981/.

Looks like the core issue isn't solved yet (neither with latest iPhone update), but the MS Windows-like workaround (restarting the app) does work indeed ;->

Correction to my previous post:

It works fine in task titles. Does not work on tag titles

Fascinating. I am unable to get this to work on my device. I wonder why it's so variable?

This issue seems to affect third party apps on the iPhone in some cases -- it can help to tap directly onto the field to make the magnifying glass appear. If the magnifying glass stops appearing, a workaround for now is to exit the app and then re-open the app.

If you haven't done so already, I'd also recommend updating to the latest version of the iPhone OS. We've been looking to find a workaround to stop this happening completely, but unfortunately it's something we're waiting on Apple to fix. :(
