This updates adds double-click instant insert to the File Browser, Image Manager etc., fixes a few issues with text selection and the Cut action on Android and iOS and fixes a few bugs and issues reported since the last update.

Double-click Insert

Double-clicking a file name in the File Browser, Image Manager, Media Manager, etc., now instantly selects and inserts the file into the editor, eliminating the need for additional actions. While this method skips the setting of attributes or options, it offers a straightforward way to insert images, videos, or file links with a single action.

Android and iOS selection fixes

While addressing a text selection bug on Android and iOS, we found it was triggered by the Context Menu activating on double-tap. Consequently, due to its limited utility on touch devices, the Context Menu has now been disabled on these platforms. Additionally, we've resolved an issue on Android and iOS where text was copied but not deleted when using the Cut action.

iPadOS Detection Issues

With the selection bug on Android and iOS, as well as a PDF display issue in JCE MediaBox, we discovered that iPadOS has dropped the "ipad" reference in its User-Agent string which helps websites identify the browser and operating system. To circumvent this, we implemented an additional JavaScript method within the Editor and MediaBox. However, this workaround is not viable on the server side with PHP, preventing the detection of iPadOS for determining the appropriate Editor Profile based on the Device option. Consequently, Editor Profiles designated for Tablet or both Tablet and Phone will not function as expected on Apple iPad devices.
