Yea I've noticed that too, super annoying. Sometimes it worked for me though, so at the time I wasn't able to get a good idea of what the problem was.
We should try upgrading SimpleMDE (a layer on top of CodeMirror). It hasn't been updated for a while, but there is a fork at https://github.com/Inscryb/inscryb-markdown-editor We could also try updating just the CodeMirror part (that might require doing a simplemde build ourselves, I think I did that in the past).
Looking at CodeMirror bug reports, I've found https://github.com/codemirror/CodeMirror/issues/5245 which seems to describe the problem, and is still an open issue.
So might be best to detect the browser somehow (that is always tricky) and do a plain textarea. It'd be unfortunate to lose the toolbar and syntax highlighting, but better than typing not working.
[tickets:#8260] Codemirror on mobile devices doesn't work

I love to write documentation on my Smart phone on the run. Currently this is not possible with Codemirror, as it doesn't handle a mobile Keyboard correctly.
- spaces are not handled or doubled
- some words are magically duplicated sonstiges,...
This affect all tools, as codemirror is widely used. Even this ticket is written in google keep and copied to the ticket ;)
A possibility to disable codemirror, or an automatic fallback to a plain textarea would be great. I personally don't use the toolbar at all, so I wouldn't miss that feature.
