If a user is using Hebrew character ע when updating a page in the iOS teacher app, they will see an error message.

Expected Behavior


This should not happen as all other Hebrew characters are not affected.



No workaround exists at this time.

Steps to Reproduce


Prerequisites: A published course with a teacher enrolled.

  • Add Hebrew character ע in the title of the page using the web browser or when logged in the mobile app as a teacher.

  • Edit the page if you made it in the browser or try to save the page you created with that character.

  • Notice the error and that the page won’t save.
