Text Editor
#1
I'm not sure if I can describe this problem accurately but here goes.

I am using a Samsung Tab 2 with Android 6.0.1. I use mainly chordpro files and often need to edit them.

So in song view I click on Edit File which invokes the inbuilt text editor. When I start to edit, the soft keyboard pops up as expected and all is fine until I need to edit the text towards the bottom of the file which is obscured by the keyboard. To select the bit I want to edit I would have expected to scroll down by swiping the screen up as this is how other text editors behave. Instead I have to press the soft key which makes the keyboard disappear then select the text to be edited. This causes the keyboard to pop up again with the line to be edited showing immediately above the keyboad.

In short I can't reveal the part of the text file which is obscured by the keyboard without closing the keyboard. Instead, for each line to be edited at the bottom of the page I have  press the soft key to close the keyboard, select the new editing position which then brings up the keyboad again and positions the line to be edited immediately above the keyboad. And so it goes on for any edits at the bottom of the file making editing quite tortuous.

I have searched the forums to see if this is a problem for anyone else but I couldn't find anything so maybe I'm doing something wrong.

Any ideas?
