When I am on “Your Observations” and press “Filter” a new window shows up and I can search in the category “Description/Tags” for animals or plants and so on. But sometimes typing in that box the spelling is backwards, see screenshots. E.G. I typed “western sandpiper” and in the box shows up : repipdnas nretsew" or typing “milkweed” is spelled “deewklim” . It doesn’t happen all the time, but the chance is probably 1 in 10. Any idea how or why this is happening?
I have an iMAC, Apple M1, my OS is Sonoma 14.1.2 and my webbrowser is Safari 17.1.2
Thank you for your help
they made some updates recently related to right-to-left language support. maybe you’re triggering things to go right to left somehow? do you know how to consistently trigger this behavior?
no I haven’t found any consistency, most of time the spelling is without problems but sometimes I have this reverse spelling
Does it then carry out the search correctly, or come back with no results because there are no repipdnas nretsew or deewklim observations?
it shows “no result” as there is no deewklim.
Does it happen in any other browser?
I am using to 99% Safari, so I haven’t tried an other browser
The next time this happens, can you please open the browser’s console and take a screenshot of it?
Here are instructions for opening the console: https://appuals.com/open-browser-console/
thank you,I will do that
This is a description of a similar-sounding chrome bug. Does it match what you’re experiencing? Are you selecting text at all?
Yes, it looks like that it is a Safari problem like your text suggests. I installed Firefox and so far the same problem has not shown up.
