I previously was able to edit text within a button by highlighting text and typing over just like word. Recently it no longer allows me to do so, I must go to the right and edit within the little text box under properties.
Solved! Go to Solution.
There has been some recent changes to working with buttons in the app studio but you should be able to double click the button and edit the text in-line. I just tried it and it worked for me.
thanks for the quick response. When I double-click it selects the border but also gives me a cursor that I can move with the arrows on my keyboard and delete previous text but not type over it. Is there a possibility of a setting that may be wrong?
I agree with @Jeff_Thorpe's thought almost. You could consider take a try to double-click the Button control, then the text within the Button would be selected, you could type over it.
I have made a test, please check the following image:
In addition, please take a try to re-create your app to check if the issue is solved on your side.
If the issue still exists, please consider take a try to enable/turn on the "Render in classic mode" option within Advanced Settings of App settings (App settings-> Advanced Settings-> "Render in classic mode" option), then re-load your app to check if the issue is solved.
I was able to change the setting to "render in classic mode." Saved and reloaded and getting the same result. When I double click, it doesn't highlight the text like it did for you. On my screen it highlights the button itself ansd add a cursor. Also it acts as though its in play mode even when on edit screen. See attached pic.
