I found a bug today, concerning the zoom function when editing text. It concerns text messages, but I haven't been able to check if it is present in other text input fields as well. It manifests itself by the Jolla being "stuck" in the zoomed in view, which occludes text to the sides as well as the actual input field. It doesn't get unstuck by cancelling the field, nor the message itself (all pages are zoomed in). Actually, it seems to persist even when closing and re-opening the text message application!

The only two ways I've found to fix it is to re-zoom in a field or reboot. Re-zooming can be difficult since it isn't directly accessible because of occlusion, and doesn't seem to always reset it. I suspect a manual kill (and therefore, forced restart) of the underlying application would work as well.

The strange thing is that I can't reproduce it now! I could reproduce it over and over again with the same result, before I restarted the device. I produced the bug by double tapping and zooming on a text message I were writing, dragging the finger down and letting it go somewhere in the keyboard area. This made the Jolla zoom out a bit, but not completely and just getting stuck there.

Has anyone else noticed this? And figured out how to reproduce it?
