This may be the solution. I was unaware of this feature.

Open the above link and see the fix. It is a feature for other languages where text is entered backwards (or right to left instead of left to right).

I understand that, but I know we haven't made any changes to how that works, so it is a browser issue. I use Chrome as my main browser and haven't been able to replicate this issue in mine yet. I wonder if there may be an extension or something similar that may be causing that issue for the handful of people that have reported this.

I could but I use chrome for literally everything else I do so it wouldn't be very convenient - I work from home and chrome is constantly open on my desktop. I've been using SP for so many years and am not thrilled about the idea of switching to a new platform but it's becoming so frustrating I don't know what else to do.

Interesting. It does appear to be browser related problem.

@MISEONA - Are you able to use a different browser to use the Nutrition Tracker?

Glad to find this thread. It's been happening to me on and off for months, but the past week more and more. I don't want to reset my browser because I'll have to update too many customizations I have. After entering ever item on my nutrition tracker I have to either wait minimum 30 seconds to type the next thing or refresh the entire page every time. It takes way too long to enter my food tracking now.

I haven't heard of this happening recently, but the few that I did hear about this previously reset their browser as I mentioned in my last post and that seemed to have resolved the issue for them.

I'm not sure which thread that was, but basically, it's something within your browser. I know the few others that this happened to reset their browser (they were using Chrome) and that resolved the issue for them, so you may want to try that as well. I also found this page with info on how to do that: ccm.net/faq/6361-reset-your-browser-restor

The same thing is happening to me. It is annoying as heck. I've never had that happen on any other website or computer program. Where is this other message board that helps?

Hi, this strange thing has been happening the last week or so. When I go to track my food the letters are going in backwards like this: https://www.screencast.com/t/GQvXdfCQOTXv

I was trying to type in sloppy joe.

Is it just me? I'm on the computer a lot but this seems to be the only place it's happening.

Thanks!

~Dagny
