Either on an earlier iOS version or on Android, I was able to set Chinese characters in dictionary abbreviations. Those old abbrevs show up as expected, but now the Chinese keyboards are unavailable in the text box and pasted Chinese becomes corrupted after saving.

Thanks - I don't think we've changed the behavior of that box on iOS so it's probably an Android thing.

Just to be clear, Android never had any issue with this. It is happening on iOS 15.6.1 with Pleco 3.2.67. The database was exported from Android however.

The bug I mention in #580 also applies to such characters as 為 or 簡: it is impossible to access their definition.

I’m running iPad iOS 16.1 (beta), and I don’t seem to be able to open pdf files in Pleco via the share button (Pleco doesn’t show up in the menu, even when clicking the more button). However, this action does work properly on my iPhone running iOS 16.

Honestly the share button is unreliable in pretty much every iOS version so I wouldn't necessarily attribute this to 16.1 - does it help if you reboot your iPad? That might make it update its index of which apps can open which file types so that it will again show Pleco as a destination for PDFs.

if you save the PDF to "On my iPad" in Files, are you able to open it as an "External File" in Pleco?

Thanks for the response. Reboot unfortunately didn’t resolve it, but PDFs can indeed be opened manually via “Open Document” within Pleco. The share button used to work for me on the iPad so maybe it’ll come back with a subsequent iOS update.

Share button working properly again after latest iPadOS beta install.
