Would you have any idea why you I can't give focus to the ajax rich text editor in the iPad/iPhone modes of EMS 2012?

    Interesting. It appears to be because we are suppressing text selection by injecting:

    -webkit-user-select: none

    Into the page. If you have control of the page, a workaround could be to assign the css property:

    -webkit-user-select: auto

    To that element.

    I am thinking about adding that as an option to the simulator. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

    Yea, I can do that for the time being.
    Love the product by the way, I talked my company into purchasing a few
    licenses in the next coming days for iPad development testing.
    Let me know though if you include this fix in a future release so I can
    remove the code injection.

    We have already posted an update with an "Allow text selection" option
    under "Global Settings". That can be used to work around this case as well.
