At random times when I enter a conversion in the Message app, the word suggestions are overlapping the text field (see screenshot below). This is a rare error and it only happens a couple of times a moth.

As soon as I start typing the word suggestions will drop down and everything will be in-line.

Also if I minimize the app (to eg. open a screenshot app) and get back everything will be in line again.

I've got the same problem, also happening in Android apps.

Same here sometimes. Swipping left to right once again does solve the problem, but a bit anoying.

Same here. Tried to make a screenshot like you, but most time it was gone after starting screenshot ;)

@SaimenSays which is the reason why I took a picture with a camera instead ;)

Thanks @Louis, since this is random it is hard to debug. I have seen it myself sometimes but I was never able to realiably reproduce. If you manage to find the steps please let us know.

I'm unable to just reproduce it if I want to. It happens at rare random times if I enter a conversation. If I minimize the message app the bug will disappear. However I could dump a specific log file next time it happens if it could help.

I doubt that logs will tell you much unfortunately :)

I trough I so. I'll let you know if I find a pattern or more info about the bug ;)
