Bug? (iOS) No context menu in CSS/JavaScript forms

On iOS, the forms for custom CSS and JavaScript do not display context menus to select/copy/paste. That means it’s not possible to paste CSS/JavaScript on an iPhone/iPod touch. You can paste on an iPad because there is a separate paste button on the keyboard.

Secondly, you cannot select text typed into the forms.

In general, the code editing forms are very difficult to use on mobile.

This is running the latest version of iOS 13. Tested on mobile Safari and Brave.

Do others get the same results? And what is it like on Android?

I get the same results on Android. We’ve had other people recently bring up this iOS difficulty as well. We use Ace for our Custom CSS/JavaScript editor, so it might be a mobile/responsive issue on Ace’s end. We’ll look into it though. Thanks for bringing it up @nibl!
