Increase textbox size if necc

Postby danielaryeh » Tue Aug 07, 2012 6:22 am

So i copied an address off of a website today with iPhone. Problem was, I couldn't copy the address without some descriptive text before it. I then pasted the address into waze, However I couldn't "scroll" to the left to erase the non-address part of the link. Here's an example:

Copy the following line in its entirety and paste to waze navigate search box:

Camp twizzers upstate address State Route 42, Fallsburg, NY 12733



As you will see its too much text to be able to erase irrelevant info. I'd post SS but I hate usin this phone!
I know iPhone messages for example will enlarge textbox size if need be


ETA:
I found a way to scroll! If you hold down finger (so little magnifier shows) all the way to the left of textbox, it will scroll.

Gonna have to try that. I always though this was a major flaw in iOS...it's not just Waze that I've run into that problem.

Will be very happy if I enhanced your Waze experience!! Something you do for us all the time :)

Maybe you should consult the iPhone user guide :) It's a bookmark in Safari on your iPhone. This is a necessary function to know how to use when modifying entered text in iOS.

Major flaw?
