How can we improve the iOS app?

Pasting text copied from external app appends random characters to the end

I’ve been a user over a year and have just noticed this behavior recently.

Steps to reproduce:
- Open Termius and connect to terminal session
- Switch to another app (ex: StackExchange page in Safari)
- Copy text from other App (examples: command from web-page or Notes app)
- Switch back to Termius, and switch to previously connected terminal session
- Paste Text copied from external App
- Note that pasted text has 1+ random character appended to end
- often it’s 1-6 characters, but sometime it’s an entire URL
- when a URL is appended, the URL name suggests that it’s iOS multitasking related. So, this may be some sort of metadata leaking into the paste buffer.

        Thanks for confirming this anonymous - now I know it's not just me. Like you, my "garbage" text often includes an iOS/cache URL.

        I'm amazed that nobody else has posted this?

        Same here but often times the extra text contains random characters and the path to a cache directory. Most of the time there’s a com.apple.something string in there too.

        An example:

        - Open terminal session.
        - Switch to Chrome, open the URL http://www.dotjson.uk/xrdp-vscode-docker/
        - Near end of article, copy this text:

        sudo sed -i 's/BIG-REQUESTS/_IG-REQUESTS/' /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libxcb.so.1

        - Switch back to Termius and paste, notice that an "a" has been appended to the end
        - If the line is deleted & re-pasted, no extra characters are appended.
