Why is clicking in a column to type so difficult?

I am using monday on my mac in the Chrome browser. When I am editing items on a board, I have an incredibly hard time just clicking in a column to type something or select text. This applies to text in the item name column or in a text column. I can click to type, it will show my cursor, and then it will de-select and I have to keep clicking several times and praying that at some point it will actually let me type. Sometimes I am able to select the text, and then it kicks me out of the box before I can edit or type anything. It’s incredibly frustrating as it makes everything I do take much longer than it should. Is this an issue with my browser, OS, or is monday just buggy? Overall, Monday seems to run slowly, respond slowly when I click anything, and behave like my computer’s about to freeze. I hope there is a fix for this.

Hi @ashleyqc :wave:

I hate clicking too :slight_smile:

When I’ve got a lot to fill in like that, I use my tab key to highlight the column I want to edit, and when it’s in the right place, ‘enter’ will open it up for you to type, then ‘enter’ again to de-select and you can keep moving with tab.

Hope that helps!

This sounds like you have something like an adblocker or other browser extension running that is interfering with your javascript in your browser. It could, and I rarely say this, be some form of malware too. Try turning all extensions off - Install and manage extensions - Chrome Web Store Help

Other thing could be your trackpad has input rejection when typing disabled and your palm is touching it and causing issues.
