This seems to be a common issue in a few Canvas applications that I have worked with. When entering into DBR cells the 1st character is often missed (or rather it is entered but then spontaneously is deleted) and you need to go back and enter it. Is this an issue with angular or a bug in Canvas? Is there a way to fix this other than force yourself to wait 1 second after selecting a cell before starting to type?
This auto-deleting of the first character also happens for numeric cells. It only happens on the first time the cell is selected and I think it has to do with the clearing of the “default value” to make way for data entry. On subsequent selections and data entry (even following ctrl+A & delete) there is no issue with the 1st character getting removed.
