When entering a string into a <Entry> control, the cursor falls out of user view to the right. The string is collected, but entry is cumbersome.
Expected behavior is:
cursor starts on left side.
Moves right as data is entered.
Once the cursor gets to the visible right edge of the <entry>, data should shift left as data typed (or entered by auto correct). This would mean the cursor stays at the right visible edge as one types.
I have read other bugs that relate to embedded controls. This is basic. This code reproduced the problem
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<Label Text="Welcome to Xamarin Forms!" />
You will need to be more specific about device(s) you're experiencing this on. I have just used that baseline code and the Entry cursor does not disappear on an iOS 11 simulator. I am attaching a GIF of the attempted reproduction.
