    Having the same issue, startimg around the same time on my Pixel 3a running Android 10 (build QQ3A.200705.002) with the latest version of the WF mobile app (3.5.23).

    Makes WF essentially unusable on Android -- afaict I can only add items to the bottom of the list (with embedded plus button) or top of the list (with floating plus button)

    Also replied to support this addition:

    More info on the bug, which I have encountered: 
     
    It is related to auto-correct suggestions in my Android.  The behavior:
     
    When a piece of text in WF is underlined and auto-suggestions are showing in my keyboard, I cannot hit the return key and it does not advance a line.  If I put a space in after the text, the auto suggest is resolved and the return key works. Likewise, if I "accept" the auto suggest word in my keyboard, it is "resolved" and no longer underlined and I can again use the return key.
     
    So that is the real issue. I suppose I know how to defeat it now, but it is a small extra key to have to hit. Not major. But I was baffled for a very very long time trying to reproduce it.

    Wow, good job figuring that out, James. Didn't occur to me that it would be anything related to the keyboard, since it happens whether I've typed any text on the line, or if I just select a line with text already on it and hot enter to insert a new bike in the middle of a list. But I now see that Android does seem to automatically pop up the autosuggestion list when putting the cursor next to any word, regardless of whether you've just typed it or not
