    Hi.
    I have a Toshiba Excite Pure Android tablet. My problem is that the search function on Motorhomefun doesn't work on it - I can open the search but as soon as I start to type it closes. I'm pretty good with computers and I've looked through the settings and can't find anything to cause this. It works fine on my desktop.
    Any ideas anyone?

    Just open up search again and you should find the first letter you typed. Then carry on. My I pad does it all the time.

    Tried that, Lin. Didn't make any difference. Also today, when I press search, it zooms in extra large to the search button area. Strange!

    It's the same on my Samsung Galaxy SIII. It must be a fairly recent occurrence though as searching used to work OK on my Samsung Galaxy Tab2 7.0.

    I've got the Galaxy Sll and I've just checked and it's the same on there too. Must be an Android bug.

    Yes, works on my SIII. As carken says, must be an Android bug.

    To confirm - that is exactly what I discovered.

    Just tried that, Merv and it worked! Didn't go to zoom first either. I'll have to remember that one.
    Now I can do my search :thumb:

    It seems to be a recent bug that affects Android, my Archos tablet always used to search ok, now I have to use advanced search, only in fun though other forums are fine
