    This is also an issue when [Shift] + [Ctrl] + [Left Arrow] is used for text selection.

    Seems to happen about a second after the list item is edited.

    Yes, I run into this problem all the time. I'm using the website, not the app. The ends of the selection sometimes get swapped, presumably when autosave happens in the background a few seconds after your last change. It's quite disruptive.

    This has been a long-standing problem in both the app and the browser and is still a problem 7 months after the earlier reports.  It only happens if you make an edit; eg add a character or two to the end of the line, then shift-left arrow (or ctrl-shift left to select words) a few times and the right-most character (or word) will be un-selected.  Has been happening in the browser pretty much all 2019 if my memory is correct; I don't use the app much but it is definitely happening in that at the moment as well.

    It doesn't seem to happen the second time you try to select on this line; the action is correct if you retry it.

    Using the latest version of the app and Chrome browsers on fully updated Windows 10 Pro.0.18362
